Sister: ENFP/J (got ENFP as a result of a test once but I had typed her as ENFJ prior so idk abt her tbh. She's super hard to type; I feel like she adopts habits and images (or at least used to) from others pretty easily.)
Uni friends: ESTJ, ISTJ, ENFP
Other friends (all from secondary school tbh): 1 x INTJ, 2 x INFJ, 2 x ISTJ, Two 'friends' who I honestly have never properly spent time with 1-to-1 even via texting or anything; my best guess for them are ISFJ + INFP but idk and I don't think they count but they're in a main friendship group anyway.
Old close friends have been mostly ISTJs + INXXs.

I have a very limited "family."
current Maine Coon cat: ENTP
Only surviving grandparent (maternal grandmother): ISTJ
I have been surrounded by Sensing people all my life. However, I take comfort in knowing that the 3 cats I've had in my lifetime are most likely Intuitive.

To the best of my knowledge…
I was the lone N in the family till my sister married an ENFP, and we get along swimmingly. My brother married an ISFP, and we get along well, too.

Family and their types!
I have been feeling this sudden burst of family appreciation and wondered if there was a correlation with the types and the families they are raised in.
My mom is an ESFP, she is the younger sister of an INFP. She eventually got married to my dad, who is an ISFP. Before they were married, my dad gave birth to my half sister, who is either a very stereotypical ESFP or a very unhealthy INTJ. My dad and mom gave birth to two kids together: a ISTP boy and seven years later an ENFP girl (thats me!).
Our relationship with one another is super interesting. My mom is super emotional, but she's also really adamant about my brother and I understanding how to manage ourselves through the real world. Her sense of humor is extraordinary even though she constantly offends my somewhat oversensitive dad. The age gap between me and my two older siblings makes it hard to interact with them, I really idolize them. I never got to really "hang out" with either of them, but watching them develop was pretty cool.
I know for a fact that my Extroverted Intuition and my Introverted Feeling were developed in part of my mom's way of parenting. She felt as though a child should never be censored just because they're a kid. She also believed that children have the right to know what's going on and deserve an honest answer when they ask questions. I'm sure my brother, who isn't as openly talkative as I am, adapted to this by gathering all he could then doing all he can. I didn't feel this way. I wanted to know as much as possible about everything possible. My mom constantly reflects on this, saying that it would've probably kept my brother and I out of trouble in school if we weren't raised to not accept 'because I said so' as an answer.
So, yeah! Family thread! What's your family like? What's their types? Do you think they have something to do with your function stack?

My mom is an ESFJ and my dad is an ISTP. My brother is an ENTP. My mom and brother are very socially extroverted while my dad and I are much quieter and reserved. My brother and I always enjoyed getting into abstract conversations that my parents thought were strange. My Si may have developed more quickly due to having sensor parents but it is hard to say for sure. I enjoyed the dynamics of these types growing up.

I don't know about correlation in functions stack between family members, but I know for sure that most often, parents' children will have the same last letter as them, meaning if the parent is J, the child will often be J. If your parents have different letters here, you'll be most likely to take on the letter of whatever parent you feel the most connected to, or the one you spent the most time with growing up.
I'm an ENTJ, my mother an ESFJ, father an ESTJ, and my sister INFJ (I suspect). Like my father, I lead with Te, but my mother leads with Fe, and my sister with Ni. We are rather different all of us, so I can really only say for sure about the last letter, which I noticed everyone in the OP's family is a P"If you fell down yesterday, stand up today." ~ H. G. Wells"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." ~ C. S. Lewis
