This is my maternal side with my mother being the oldest sibling and all my first cousins older than me. My mother and father are proud people but she was more traditional than he was and more mature. My father is intelligent but sometimes can be distant and people may not understand him; he also clashed with my ESFJ grandmother! My grandmother's E is strong and she socializes a lot making us Is uncomfortable! She is very personable and has a hostess demeanor. My favorite cousin, the ISTP, is really laid back, caring and witty. His older brother the EXTJ is outgoing, dutiful, clean-cut and is climbing the social ladder facile. My mysterious, brooding ISFP cousin is suspicious but I believe that she could be misunderstood like her IXFP mother, my aunt. I have no words for my ESTP uncle.
My pseudo-grandparents ISFP (grandfather) and INFJ (grandmother) that I was raised by I was indeed close to and learned a great deal from especially my pseudo-grandmother who is Ni dominant. She was the matriarch and had much respect from the family. She proudly claimed me as the last grandchild she raised and I feel like I am next in line for the throne.
The family clashes every now and again over trival things and my grandmother gets disrespected alot by my cousins. I was not raised around them so I am on the outside when it comes to these things. But when my ISTP cousin recently got into trouble my family pulled together to support and pray for him and he is coming out of his isolated self.
My entire family knows that I am smart and I don't talk much but it never bothered them, but I love them all dearly and would help them if they are ever in a pinch!
