Grandme: ESFj (had two children including my father)
Aunt: INtJ married IN-P
cousins = INtJ and ISTJ
Great Uncle: INTJ married InFJ
2nd Cousins: INTP, INTJ and ENTJ
In this family, all of the conversations at get togethers are conceptual, and we are exposed to the way of thinking and conversing from a young age, so those experiences might be a factor in all of the Ns. Everyone is Science and Math – I am the first person deviating from the trend.
My mom's family:
Grandma: ESFJ (Had four daugthers including my mother)
Aunt: ESFJ married to ISTJ
cousins = ISTJ, INTJ, ENFP
the ISTJ is married to an InFP
2nd cousins = ISTJ and ENFP
Aunt: ESFJ married to ESTJ (children adopted)
Cousins = INTJ, ESTP and ESFP
Aunt: ISFJ whom is married to ENTJ
Cousins = INFJ and ISTJ
This part of the family is very religious. They are missionaries, pastors or dental hygienist.
One common trend I notice is that all of the individuals that are IS-Js in my family are the first born in their immediate family. I am not sure is this is caused by a common role that the first child is expected to play, I find it to be an interesting trend. My grandpe, father, brother and 2nd cousin that are INTJs are also the first born, and my INFJ grandpa was the first of 9.
I say possibly. A lot of kids can have certain personality traits from their parents. Like me and my dad for instance. Him and I both love music, have the same tastes in some things, have the same way of going about things, etc. So sure, I think so.
So he said to me "I love you, just not the way you want me to." I hit him, because he lied to me.
I also think the environment will affect different people in different ways. If two different people at youth are impacted by the same exact environment (for argument's sake), it will affect them differently, and this is where nature comes in, in my opinion.
As for the nature vs. nurture argument, humans' personalities are shaped by both. It's close, almost a 50-50 break imo. Part of our personalities are shaped by what we're born with, while the other half are shaped by our environment.
