    I'm not 100% on my Dad's type, but I'm pretty positive.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I don't mean this in a condescending way at all, but you realize that this isn't necessarily "gene theory" per se, right? Connecting children to their parents' types doesn't mean they inherited the types through genetics.

    (Edit: Just saw the other thread related to this - I would have been surprised if I were the only one to point this out!)

    Type: ENTJ (only child)
    Father's type: INTP
    Mother's type: ESFJ
    Maternal grandmother's type: possible ESFJ, but so ridiculously mentally unhealthy that it's almost impossible to type...

    Sure, but it could be. It's fun and interesting. I just wanted to see...

    Also, I've posted quite a bit on type and genetics... I believe nurture is largely NOT to blame for type (but I respect others' opinions otherwise).
    Since I think nature causes type, I thought I'd see if there's an obvious correlation. However, given the nature of genes, this won't necessarily tell us what I want to know.

    Still again, fun!

    Oh, I agree that the idea is totally fun. If only we could truly control for one's upbringing and background... heh. In my years as a psych major, I found that pretty much every answer to the nature vs. nurture question is simply "both."

    I do believe that there's a genetic predisposition to MBTI type, but it probably involves multiple gene combinations, which makes simple correlations difficult. Still, this is a great idea and I wish you luck!

    Here are the MBTI types of my immediate family. We spent quite some time working together to verify each other's types, and my subsequent observations have confirmed that they are highly accurate:

    MY TYPE (eldest brother): INFJ
    FATHER'S TYPE: INFP
    MOTHER'S TYPE: ESFP
    SIBLING 1's TYPE (younger brother): ISFP

    What's really unusual is that we are all Feeling types. I don't know anyone else without a single T in their immediate family.

    And I'd get him to swap our places,

    Father - INTJ
    Mother - INFJ
    SIster - ESTJ
    Me- ENFP

    all 100% (or as close to 100 as i could get) certain.

    and as a side note, not to discourage, and i saw someone mentioned it above, but you wont find anything. though MBTI most likely has something to do with genetics a) we (probably) are not geneticists b) genes are extremely complicated as is the personality (which is to say that even MBTI, in full, isn't enough to even get close to describing ones personality)

    i like the enthusiasm though

    Dad- INTP
    Mom- ENFp
    Myself- infp (borderline and balanced on everything)

    Mine looks like a good example for your theory, INTP + ENFP

    Mom = ISFJ
    Dad = ESTP
    Sis = ISFJ
    Me = INtP

    Paternal Grandfather = ISTJ
    Paternal Grandmother = IxFP
    Maternal Grandfather = xSxx
    Maternal Grandmother = ISFJ

    Paternal Uncle = xSTx
    Paternal Uncle = xSxx
    Maternal Uncle = ISFJ
    Maternal Aunt = xSTJ

    As far as N's go, I have one cousin (ENFP) on my father's side. Everyone else in my entire basic extended family (those listed above and the other nine cousins) is an S.
