    Think of me as pre-famous.

    I still think you could take Nancy Grace, though. She's just blusterous.

    It would be fun! I'd love to tear some hair out of that helmet she wears at all times.

    They could be cannibulimics - like a Dahmer/Olsen Twins mashup, if you will.

    Great thread!

    I always have doubt whether I fit in that ISFJ mother description. I mean whether I'm really as nice as a typical ISFJ mother. My kids adore me though ...

    no one's the perfect mom all the time. everyone gets stressed and frustrated. even 'typical ISFJ" moms. it's how you are the majority of the time that matters.

    ...

    i mean, as long as you aren't smashing a plate over their heads when they don't finish eating their veggies when you get frustrated, then the majority of the time.

    My kids adore me though ...
    sounds like you're doing fine!

    meh, as long as kids aren't adoring their parents because they always get their way, or because they aren't being given boundaries, then it's a great sign.

    i'm sure you don't do that, of course, just saying that it's sad in general when that happens. the mom thinks the kids love her, but in actuality, the nicer she tries to be, the more they take advantage of her and laugh behind her back.

    My own mothering style is very much like the ENFJ description....on an ideal day. I fall in between the ENFJ/ENFP line. I very much like to have an "excuse" to be a goober with them. I think it's good for their development. We have lots of "heart-to-hearts" around here! My mother is an ESTJ but she parented like a cross between ESTJ/ISTJ/ESTP descriptions. She was very literal, practical and definitely "what you see is what you get". It drove me insane as she discounted the importance of anything that didn't fall into her line of thinking.

    It sounds to me as if they took generic type descriptions, and simply applied the positive sides of their normal work and relationship habits specifically to the concept of motherhood. That seems like a bit of a reach, since the descriptions can be a little off, and don't take into account individual idiosyncrasies, or even the accepted negative aspects of these types. It might be a helpful introduction to get older people interested in MBTI theory, however.
