Newbie Growth Question
This is a question seeking clarification/elaboration on newbie growth.
1. Will newbie growth precede any other later stages growth for all people?
2. If one has not experienced newbie growth, will one still experience newbie growth later on? OR
3. If one has not experienced newbie growth for a certain period of time (says 6 months) since starting of PE, then one will miss the window of opportunity for newbie growth? (just like the adolescent period)
4. If one has stopped PE for a considerable time and later resumes PE, will he still experience newbie growth (if he has or has not experienced newbie growth in previous PE)?
PS. How would you define newbie growth (its key characteristics)?
