Is there a word that indicates somebody has an innate sense of something exceeding the expected grasp of that sense for his age? Similar to wise beyond their years.
An example case would be a ~18 year-old teenager that is as mature and responsible as an average 35 year-old adult.
The death of his parents early in life had instilled in John an X sense of responsibility for his younger siblings.
I keep thinking of "preternatural", but I feel like it's too broad. You could use it for things that are too big, too fast, or just plain unusual. I'm looking for something that deals specifically with time.
