I am curious as to how you feel the MBTI types of your parents, siblings, or whoever happened to live in your household growing up, have interacted with your own personality type, effected it, or molded it. I wonder if there is a similar correlation amongst INTPs. Let's see.
My mother was an artist when she was younger. She substitute taught in her 20s & she homeschooled me for one year. She now interviews children who claim to have been sexually abused. We had an extreme amount of tension while I was growing up & I actively hated her until I left home & got my space. Now, we are best friends.
My father was a politician, & served a term in the NC house of representatives. Before, & after, his political term, he is a business man. He seems to know everything, but does not make a show of it. He has the answer to any question he hears & knows a lot about it. We didn't speak much growing up. He left most of the parenting up to my mom, because he was out of town a lot. I love spending time with him now & feel like I am getting to know someone I didn't fully know before. Is it unusual that my boyfriend has his same type?
My sister is in her first year of college. She has been working with horses since we both started taking riding lessons at a very early age. I left the pasture to spend more time figuring out computers, but still visit often because I love animals. She has trained, raced, & showed horses for almost 10 years now, & she's not even 20. We have been each other's best friends since the beginning of time. I potty trained her. Heh.
I am new to learning/knowing about personality typing. I spent a lot of time finding out my type & making sure it was accurate & true, not based off of my own self ideals. Finally I found that I am INTP, & the descriptions I have read are shocking. I felt like I was reading my own biography. It was almost scary... but not, just exciting to see myself in a way that, apparently, others do. Since I am with the experts here, I was hoping not only to get input about others' own personal upbringings, but also to see if anyone had any insight on how my parents' types classically deal with raising INTP children... especially for their first child.
Oh, &... Pleasure to meet all of you like-minded individuals. I've been looking for you. Hehe.
