I would love to talk about my family! They drive me crazy!
Father-ISTJ Mother-ENFP (An interesting combination IRL, let me tell you)
Sister 1--INFP with NTish leanings
It's fun here! We have two sets of opposite types in the family!

He pronks, too!
Let's see, my father is an INTJ. His mother was ESFJ and his father was INTJ. His brothers are ENTJ and ENFJ. He has a third brother whose type I do not know.
My mother was an ISFP and my only sister is an ENFJ.
My husband is an INFP and so is his only sister. His father is an ESTJ. His mother is probably ESFJ.
My family members took the Keirsey Temperament Sorter in the first Please Understand Me text. My husband's parents I am just guessing on.
Mom & Aunt are psychology people, so we've all taken the official test through family counseling. Woohoo.
Mom - ESTP
Dad - ISTJ
Brother - INFP
Aunt (mom's sister) - ISTJ
Cousin - INFP
Cousin - ENFJ, with one of those borderline N/S. She could be an ESFJ.
Grandmother (mom's side) - SJ, most likely ISTJ
Grandfather (mom's side) - INT?, or ISTP
Grandmother (dad's side) - NFish. I've been told that I am her carbon copy, so she's a possible INFJ. Unfortunately, she died a few years back (after helping raise me while my mother worked & my father and I had issues).
On my mom's side, everyone seems to test with an S & T. However, they produced 4 NF grandchildren.
They say INFJ's like to emulate those they admire and if that's the case, then I became more INFJ because of the grandmother who helped raise me & provided me with as stable of a life as possible.
My husband: ISTP
My children: ExxP (quite probably Ne, So ENxP)
IxxJ (quite probably T rather than F)

This is eerily like me!! My father is an INTJ, his mother was ESFJ, his father was INTJ, and his sister is xNTJ. None were tested; and for what it's worth, I don't know how terribly relevant testing is for older generations who have already probably become comfortable in their other non-dominant functions. But I'm absolutely positive about my grandmother and grandfather, and based on a lot of thought and observation INTJ is the best fit for my father; his sister is the only unknown to some degree - I can't tell whether she's naturally E or naturally I - but I lean towards E, as she tends to be much more outspoken than my father.

Same goes for her mother. I have no idea whether she's N or S...I think it can be more challenging too with the older generations who had different role/cultural expectations).
I'm INFJ, my brother is INTP. Brother said he took the test back in high school and came out INTP. Based on my observations, I'd have to agree.
Culturally, heavily northern European. My fathers' side of the family were more recent immigrants to the U.S. - late 1800's/early 1900's - and are Norwegian, Swedish, and German. That's it.
My mom's side of the family immigrated much earlier -- from the mid/late 1700's into the early 1800's. Primarily British/Irish/Scottish, with some German.
