i have three nephews one of them is three, one is fourteen months and one is twelves months old. The three year old is most definately already a 7w8, however the 14 months already has a little personality, he is very serious, he looks so cute because he seems to have the same serious expression on his face all the time, even when i try and make him laugh he wants to laugh but is too stubborn to even smile at me. he doesnt like me playing with my other nephew, when i do this he walks over to me and taps me! but he has quite a calm manner about him, he is just very serious,, any idea what type he could be?

In my opinion, there's too little information to go on to discern any kind of Enneagram type for your nephews. There could be so many factors and influences coming into play for his behaviours, that to make a decision on one E-type would be hasty and almost impossible to get correct.

I do believe, however that E-type is innate and can be determined from a young age. I don't know that I would say as young as 14 months for an accurate "reading", but I know that if I had information on the Enneagram back when my daughters were toddlers, I would have picked their types easily.

Looking back I could say that as early as 3-5 years of age there were enough clear signs of type. There were also some behaviours pointing to certain types before that age, but not enough to determine for certain a type.

My eldest was clearly a 7w6 ENFP from about 2-3 years of age and my younger daughter showed her 3ness quite early. I'd say around 3 years old.
