    Default Within the family

    I'm positive my dad's ISTJ. I made my brother take the test and wala, ISTJ too. I have a hard time seeing my mom as the same type as me but perhaps that's because of her uhm parenting but she may be INFJ like me. A family of introverts we are. A little freaky. I may become very attracted to ISTJs as they seem very reliable and sturdy and then we'll breed ISTJ and INFJ children. Oh goody.

    Maybe my mother's ENFJ which makes them duals. Hmmmmmmmm. Super-ego sounds conflicting and they fight but they never really seriously fight. Yeah. Close enough.

    Pictures always help a lot, especially for I/E and T/F distinctions.

    My family is five introverts and an extrovert. When we meet we usually spread out in the house right after we've eaten. Two floors and two ends of the house makes four general areas to hide in and the garden is quite big.

    Father: INTj

    LOL

    If you don't mind me asking, does the super-ego description at socionics.com describe the relationship between you and your father?
    He's a great dad but we're not that close as in chat every single day. But when issues arise, he's always on my side and convincing my mom to be on my side too. But we could be...because when we work together and he gets frustrated but that's him under stress and he's fine and feels bad about it afterwards. It fits him perfectly and he reminds me of all the other ISTJs so I'm sure he's that type.

    Mom's ISFJ actually. Makes sense.

    So much introvert and stresss. Eeew.

    Are there correlations between your parent's functions and your functions? Is it inheritable?

    My ISFP mother says that she does it because we were bad, but not really, she enjoies exercising poweer and force, makes her feel good about herself.

    Lol kick her back.

    As for my family:

    Dad: ISTj
    Mother: ISFj
    Brother: possibly ESFp
    Me: ENTj

    I have noticed that in my mother's family runs a strage patter:

    My grandad's brothers are mostly STs
    Their sons (my mother and her brothers/cousins/sisters) are mostly SFs
    My generation has an incidence of NTs of 66.6 percent, which is an astounding deviation from the mean, at least in North-Eastern Italy.

    Hey Blaze, I'm curious about the ESTJ and INFJ duality. Can you tell me how your parents act with each other, if they get along very well...etc?

    Hmmmm good question. They get along pretty well. When stressed, my mom calls my dad a "dreamer" (huh that's pretty funny, look at your name! :-) my dad calls my mom "insensitive". That's when they're stressed.

    My mom controls the money and does the discipline and sets limits. My dad is the zany nice guy willing to agree to anything (then my mom comes in and gets reality going). My father is really funny and charming and sometimes a little bit attention seeking and egotistical. But he has a very kind soft heart, hates violence, and can be idealistic. My mom is the ultimate realist and knows when the jig is up. She tries to help my dad see this. My dad tries to help my mom soften up a little bit.

    They seem to understand what one another needs. My dad understands when my mom needs rest and quiet, my mom understands when my dad needs alone time for study and imagination.

    My mom sacrificed her career for my dad's. She's trained as a teacher, but gave this up so my dad could move around and up and try different things as a pastor. There is a lot of give and take in the relationship but I would have to say that my mom gives a little bit more.

    They've been married 42 years, so they've got something I didn't get with my marriage that's for sure. What was I thinking marrying my lookalike?

    Calm seas 80% of the time; stormy weather 20%. It's not bad at all, really. No worse than most families. Some Fi/Ti tensions when they get riled up, but it's worked out.

    Kim your parents are the same as mine - read my decription above - is this how your parents' relationship is?

    Do you supervise your sister?
