I don't really buy into this theory. As a child I was a very responsive child while my parents were neutral, perhaps some what active. This would make me type 2 or 1, which is quite funny because I've definitely never even thought that I could be a 2.
Since my parents were very absent (in a parenting way), I never bothered with getting their attention. I never felt like they even wanted to give me some of their time, even when they were home and had some time to share. I saw them every day but they were there in the same way the fridge was in the kitchen. Since I could take care of myself, my mother put whatever efforts she had on my younger sibling (and that turned into an other disaster). I've never been "empathetic" and I probably never will be. I've always done things the way I want to and whenever I want to, and of course my people skills are not very good.
