My dad: ISTP
My mum: ESFJ
My dad is INTP, my mom is INTJ... they've been together for 32 years and get along really well and even though they tend to drive each other nuts, they don't fight.
I'm INTP, but somehow I relate to my mom way better than I relate to my dad--maybe because she's a stay-at-home mom? Communication with her is practically telepathic. A shot look or a few gestures can accomplish several sentences' worth of speaking. We finish each others' sentences, start each others' sentences, say each others' sentences for each other, and say things in unison with exactly the same inflection. We even sigh and facepalm in tandem. It's extremely creepy and really funny.
My dad... usually watches us doing things, and there are rather long spaces where we're translating ourselves (and each other). Even this act can be compared to watching two people play a video game. Poor Dad.
ESFJ and INFJ
INTJ Step dad
My dad is an ISFJ, and my Mom is an ESTJ. (She tested as an ISTJ, but I can tell she's Te dominant, but more importantly, Fi Inferior)
ISTJ/P & ESFP (probably both are borderline types)
Mom seems very 6w7 so/sx ESFP.
Das on the outside looks like a 5w6 INTP...but I have the feeling that he is INFP. Fi users always come across so cold if they are heavy introverts....thou there are obvious Ti usage signs.
Must be because the only way I express stuff is through Te. Its the highest extroverted judging function.
My father is an ISTJ and my mother is an ISFJ. I came out as an INTJ.
Dad is so ISTJ, it hurts. Sometimes I think I understand him like I understand myself. Other times...
Mom is probably an ESFP. She's very free spirited but often doesn't realize the consequences for others when she gets what she wants. I love her implicitly though. She lightens me up. It helps if I try not to be the parent.
Step mom is ESFJ. She's a control freak and very negative yet can't take it in return. I do realize she is only trying to make a "stable" home life but it was suffocating me. I left as soon as I was able.
"An ESFJ who has developed in a less than ideal way may be prone to being quite insecure, and focus all of their attention on pleasing others. He or she might also be very controling, or overly sensitive, imagining bad intentions when there weren't any."
