Yes, that's right, the people that bore and bread me.
Sorry it's such a shit photo. It was the only one I could find.
I don't know my dad very well. He's quite a private person, as many of you 4w5s, like him, on here can sympathise with. He doesn't like people who attempt to move him in some way i.e. in order to do housework. He used to hate the way my mum would "micro-manage" his life, and order him about. To be honest, I think he had/has a massive aversion to Se. He was shit at organising his spaces, and our kitchen used to be an extension of his office space (which was about a meter squared (no joke)). But he did like his gadgets (iPod, splash out on huge conversion to Apple from Windows because he was "pissed off" with Windows). We had a library, both of music and in books. He absolutely loves reading. He has a huge base knowledge, but he's not as skilled at reciting facts as my granddad. He likes to play wordgames and test our intellect and own knowledge. He probably got it from my other granddad, a 3, who is really, really task orientated. I think he may be an EIE, but I don't know.
I get on very well with my dad. The only problems we have is in prolonged contact with one another. Apparently, I turn everything I possibly can into an argument with him. I can have extensive conversations about the Enneagram, MBTT, philosophy, politics, history and other ideas with him, but we need our own space. I think he finds I can often come on too strong for him. My mum used to get really pissed off with his (her perceived) criticising her.
In social situations, he's very charming and diplomatic, and he can get people to like him quite easily. He doesn't like my blunt, matter-of-fact style, especially if he's trying to impress. He might nervously laugh it off or whatever, but we're rarely in that situation.
My mum has brought me up well. While my dad has given me an intellectual basis, my mum is on a totally different wavelength. She can often not relate to him at all. She says he's too in his head. She's very attuned to her surroundings, and whether or not she's comfortable. She'll walk in after work, and if she can't relax in "her" spaces, she'll boss everyone about until she can. My dad calls this "7 going to 1". We all used to get fed up of it, and we'd challenge her on it. But she'd always manage to sort it out using us.
She's a fun-lover, but not an adrenalin junkie. She loves to socialise and party, and she's very good at it. She likes gossip and trash TV, but isn't the cream of the British working class. She'll dress how she wants, and can go what I consider to be overboard in dress. She's got a very good sense of aesthetics and used to photograph a lot. Her style isn't like Minde's (which I personally prefer), because she prefers more rustic colours. Our aesthetic tastes have clashed quite a lot, and since I was about 8, I've been trying to grasp her style, and have made some progress, so that now I can predict what she will like and what she doesn't. She's a very sensual person come to think of it.
Recently, I introduced her to the functions. I had a little talk with her, and did the asshole and the drink test. She, I think, is Fi-valuing. I asked her her life goal, and she said it's to help people to realise themselves. She's a feminist, but not a hardline one, which is good. But for me and my dad she takes the piss sometimes.
If you want/need more specific info on any of them, I'll tell you what I can.
