...is ESTj/LSE, I have decided.
My dad is fairly easily a Delta NF, probably INFj. But for a long time I was very unsure how to type my mother. Although I have always had an exceptionally good relationship with my parents, during my teen years I got along less well with her than with my father, and sometimes I felt there was an understanding barrier.
When I initially considered ESTj, she seemed too timid and quiet. I think, though, a lot of that can be explained through her upbringing and especially her father, who put her down and intimidated her and generally undermined her self-esteem.
But the more I look at it all, the more I have let it all settle into place in my mind, the more clearly I see her as an ESTj, even if not a completely stereotypical one.
She's not outgoing, but she has the proactive EJ energy. Her Fe is often quite minimal, sometimes almost painfully so, heh. For example, she far values productivity and practicality over niceties and will run unaware over others' feelings in her quest to get something done. She's also good with her hands and in understanding how mechanical things work.
Anyway, I could go on if needed, but this isn't so much a "what's her type?" thread as it is... an announcement, I guess.
