Default Re: typing children and pre-adolescents

I've found that some children exhibit very strong preferences early on, while others may be difficult to place. I personally doubt one can provide accurate testing for a child until at least age 3 or 4.
Direct observation over a specific period in unfamiliar and familiar settings of social interaction, play, and preferred modes of expression would probably be the best approach for typing children. It might also help to know the types of the parents and caretakers, so as to assess their interaction with the child and perhaps determine whether or not the relations fit socionics type relations.
