The title basicaly says it all. Having grown up in a church which performs infant baptism, I very seldom see someone who is not either a small child or an adult baptized. Seeing someone who did not fit one of those categories started me wondering, and now I want other people’s opinions. What age should someone be in order to choose to be baptized?

Note: This thread is NOT intended as a debate about infant baptism or non-infant baptism. Nor is it intended for a discussion about sprinkling vs. immersion or other techniques. Rather it is an IMHO-style poll about the age at which a child becomes sufficiently mature and aware of the consequences to decide that he or she desires to be baptised. Since religious threads outside of GD tend to attract posters who can’t remember the difference in appropriate behavior for threads in GD vs. other threads, I’m trying to save the moderators trouble and just starting it in GD.
