    This may be a strange request, but can someone please help me here.

    I want to know, in as much detail as you wish to go into, what the stereotyped teenager is. For example, people regard teenagers sometimes violent emotional swings to be attributed to their hormones.

    What other common traits are there to teenagers?

    We are rude, disgusting little creatures that have no respect for other people and we are extremely cocky and we think we are invincible. :p

    Did I win?:D

    One stereotype is that teenagers - at age 15 or so - suddenly stop communicating in a pleasant way with their parents. At some point, around 19 - 21, they suddenly rediscover that their parents are good people, and the communication resumes.

    That's how I remember myself at those ages, and that's how my son is now. And when I mention it to other adults, they all smile and nod knowingly. So maybe it's more of a truth than just a stereotype, or maybe it's a case of their being a grain of truth in all stereotypes. :p

    That's when they are away at college and suddenly run out of money. Parents become really handy then :D

    Heheh, good point, but in addition to asking for money, I distinctly remember how it suddenly occurred to me that my parents actually were intelligent, and worth talking to! :p

    I believe that anything in life can be more amusing when thrusting is involved.

    I suppose another one is thinking you know it all, and that you must be the first person evar in the world to think like that or be feeling like that.

    When you get old like me (;)), you realise that it's not the case, but then you realise it doesn't really matter either.

    Grumbling rather than speaking, spotty, moody, know-it-all, ungrateful little bastids springs to mind.

    And we're all desperate to be different from everyone else - nevermind that we all wind up the same again by trying to be different.

    We go through life's biggest highs and lows. Metaphorically and literally.

    "I can't do any better but I'm going to pretend like I can and criticize anyway. I'm so big and clever..." Good thing they grow out of it... usually. :p

    teenagers are also really subtle.

    edit: LMTO that you edited the text to make it smaller just after I posted that. That made me "LOL"

    I remember when I was a teenager, I thought everything I did was cutting edge and extremely clever and funny. Now I look at teenagers and see some of the same things that I did and am baffled that I ever thought that way. :eek:
