My reply the child that believes in Santa even after their circle of friends no longer does. Why would they other than your stated definition. Well what do you say ? I have heard KMO and Joe. It was your post. Would you care to respond?>>

Your question didn't mean anything to me. So you have a group of children, and one of them is the last to believe in Santa Claus. That happens in 100% of groups of children. How could you infer anything at all from that, let alone the degree of clarity someone has about life purpose? And I thought your point was that ALL children have clarity of purpose and then somehow lose it. No, it makes no sense to me. Please clarify.
