New Quiz: What Type of Kid Were You?

What kind of kid were you like? Take my latest quiz to find out what type of kid you were.

What were you like as a kid? Were you smart? Were you shy? Were you rambunctious? Were you wise beyond your years? I’m always amazed by how distinct our personalities are at a young age … even if they end up changing later on. I was one of the oldest kids in my family, and growing up I got to see how unique each little kid was from an early age.

I think it’s fun to look back and think about our childhood personalities, because we have room enough to have a good perspective on ourselves. While looking at where we are right now is always good, I feel like it’s hard for me sometimes to do an honest and unbiased assessment. But looking back at myself as a kid is a lot easier. I can see how I was with a clearer picture and without judgment. And while our personalities may change drastically as we become adults (or not… mine really hasn’t), I think it’s always good to see where we’ve been 🙂

    2. How sensitive I was
    3. Still a bit of an approval seeker, but I’m less sensitive and am more comfortable with standing out or expressing myself.

    2. Quiet, hyper, stubborn, etc
    3. I’m less argumentative and I try not to let small things upset me so much. I’m still quiet

      Love everything you wrote here, and I agree – not letting small things upset us so much is an important part of growing up… even if some don’t do it 😉

    You Were an Intuitive Kid
    As a kid, your power element was water. You were a very balanced and intuitive kid.
    You were probably always more emotionally mature than the children around you. You may have found it easier to relate to adults than most kids.

    And while it may have been hard for you to relate to the kids around you, it’s likely you had a very close friend or two.
    Deep connections were important to you from an early age, and you were the type most able to form a ‘BFF’ bond with someone.

    As a kid, you saw things in the abstract. You did best when you were able to daydream, play, create, and engage your imagination.
    You probably found it challenging to sit still in a structure classroom. You may not have made trouble, but your mind was likely elsewhere.

    Sigh.. Good memories! I was a really cynical kid, I mean, wow, maturity! But, even though I related (somewhat) to adults more than the usual kid, I hated adults and how they “lied” to us “kids” ! Memories… I was just the kid in the corner drawing. My sarcasm somehow stayed 😛 .

      I love your analysis here, and I can relate very much to being the cynical kid! I think it is definitely a sign of precociousness 🙂

    2. I think I may have been thinking about things that most other kids weren’t.
    3. I find it harder to be as comfortable with myself and I’m not very good at “play” but I’m still a dreamer and as compassionate (maybe as much) as I was then.
    4. Happy Inner Child.
    You see life as simple, and simple is a very good thing. You’re cheerful and upbeat, taking everything as it comes.
    And you decide not to worry, even when things look bad.
    You figure there’s just so many great things to look forward to.

      It’s definitely so much harder to be good at play as an adult! I wish I were more playful, but I think I may have to live a calmer life for it 😉

    1. Some thinking and some intuitive
    2. I don’t really understand the question, and it seems only an introverted sensor can answer it easily, at least I think so
    3. I was more emotional and a bit more easily disturbed by horror
    4. Sad/surprised
