Females, Lutino Indian Ringneck Missy and Silver Lavender IRN Gracie.
Had parrots before but they were all older. Missy I've raised since she was 5 weeks and she's now 10 weeks and a bit. She is into everything. I've closed doors to keep her out of rooms, had to put away my art as she simply wouldn't leave them alone, can't do anything anywhere in the house without her having to "help" me. Can't even make her toys without her "help" and as soon as I put the toy down, she loses interest in it.
Is this a normal baby bird thing that she will out grow (probably at bluffing stage)? Is it a IRN thing? Or is this just a Missy thing? Help.

With some training, it does get better! And it's probably just a baby bird thing. I don't know if this is specific to IRNs. Probably not...?

It does get easier. In medium parrots we’re looking at 6 months to a year of the adolescent difficult time. In large parrots it can be up to 3 years of teenage crapitude. It’s honestly amazing how a creature so physically different can have such close social and developmental parallels to humans! It’s like having a lifelong needy, loving, humorous, sometimes cantankerous toddler in the house. That has wire cutters for a mouth. ☺️
