Me ( ) INFP

Does anybody else think it's strange to see such a combo?

Mom - ISFJ
Dad - INTP
Sister - INFP
Brother - Untestable, but IXXJ. I suspect that if he hadn't been developmentally disabled, he would have tested ISTJ, but it's hard to say.
Me - INFJ
A house full of occasionally imbalanced introverts. I wouldn't have it any other way. Seriously, going out into the extraverted world was pretty tough sometimes because I was used to quiet spaces where nobody really got in my face.INFJ

Mom - ESFJ
Dad - ISTP
Brother #1 - ISTP
Brother #2 - ESTP
Brother #3 - ENFP
This is all just speculation, not for sure. I am for sure that my mom and I are the only J's. >___> It's very obvious too. My 3rd brother is only 11, so I'm not really quite sure if he is an 'S' or an 'N' yet. I'm picking 'N' for now because he does have a a pretty big imagination.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

Just my best guesses. I'm wondering if birth order has anything to do with it. I'm the oldest child and the only OBVIOUS J-type.
My own kids (using the Nuture by Nature book)
Husband - ENTX
Daughter - ESFP
Son - XSFX
Son - ENFP or XNXP (he's only 9 and has ADHD)
Not a lot of J's in my life! Wonder where mine came from?

Sorry...I wish I could offer a better picture.
My youth was earmarked with instability and poverty. One of the reasons I grapple with control today is to avoid the mistakes of my parents.
This isn't to necessarily suggest the connection is faulty. For a long time, it wasn't. The divisive variable was money, as my father could rarely hold steady employment (despite advanced degree). We moved around often and sunk deeper into debt, as years passed.
My dad was cheerful and highly creative; he and my mother were able to emotionally "understand" eachother quite well.
I wish you the best. My experiences are intimate to factors that existed outside of MBTI context. The INTJ and ENFP are well-suited partners.

Thank you for your informative reply.
Edit: Oh, and sorry to hear about what you've gone through.

Mom - INTJ - We get along when we are not around each other. No one could ever live up to her expectations.
Her Husband - INTP or INTJ. Mom's hard on him too, but they basically get along because of similar interests that they can enjoy together such as reading and gardening.
My dad - died when I was a baby, but I suspect he had the same personality as I do. He was an artist and musician that worked as a tree trimmer.
My brothers are ESTJ (Office administrator), ISXX (handyman), and ENTP (photographer that loves to go clubing.)
Aunt - XNFJ - was a social worker
Uncle - INTP - Engineer
Aunt - ISTJ - School teacher
My Husband - ISTJ - I know it's kind of crazy to say this here, but he already knows, we clash big time.
One of our offspring is same type as me, which I get a kick out of, the other EXXX, which is a little hard on him since his immediate family are all I's. He brightens things up a bit when all seems sullen!
