    I do believe MBTI may be correlated with genes if it was proven that a person's MBTI type cannot change.

    Anyways my family:

    Father: INTP, INTJ, ISTJ
    The closest I can come up with for my father. It is really hard to type him. I'm guessing mainly because he is trying to force a fatherly figure on himself (ISTJ). I'm thinking INTJ is the closest for him.
    Mother: INTP
    Older brother: ENFP
    Younger brother: EXFJ
    Me: INTJ

    Mom: ISFJ (Si Fe)
    Maternal grandmother: EXFJ (Fe, ?)
    Maternal grandfather: EnFP (Ne?, Fi)
    Mom's sister: ESFP (Se, Fi)
    Mom's brother: ISFP? (Fi, Se)

    There's something of an xSFx bent, but not much correlation in specific functions.

    Dad: INTJ (Ni Te)
    Paternal grandmother: something with Si-Ne
    Paternal grandfather: ISTJ? (Si Te)
    Dad's sisters: XNTP, xSTJ (Ne/Ti), (Si, Te?)
    Dad's brother: XXTJ (don't know him very well)

    Bit of bias in favor of Te (which is particularly obvious when my NTP aunt is around, by contrast).

    I think there is a genetic component but I would suggest looking at functions not MBTI letters. It's also likely very complex.

    Anyways:
    mom's mom: enfp ne, fi, te
    mom's dad: extp xe, ti,fe
    mom: enfp ne,fi,te

    dad's mom: infj ni, fe,ti
    dad's dad: unknown
    dad: infj ni,fe,ti

    me: enfp ne,fi,te
    sister: esfp se,fi,te

    half brothers dad: extp Xe,fe, Ti
    half brother: esfp se, fi, te

    so in my family, XeFiTe is the only consistent thread which constantly gets passed in preference over the TiFe/FeTi combo?? However we dont have Si popping up out of nowhere. We also dont have IXXPs either or Fe doms popping up either...

    ex-dad-in-law: intj ni, te, fi
    (his mom:estp, his dad: ixtp)
    ex-mom-in-law: istp ti, se,ni,fe
    (her mom: enfp, her dad: istp)

    my ex-husband :istp ti,se, ni,fe
    sis-in-law 1:enfp ne,fi,te
    sis-in-law 2:estp se,ti,fe

    so in my husbands family, mom's type and the two grandmom's types carried over. However notice you dont have Fe doms popping up out of nowhere...

    my son1:enfp
    my son2: IXTJ-likely an intj

    my mom's mom was an enfp so we carry the tradition on it seems.
    my second son seems to have carried over grandpa's type.

    my sister-an esfp has two kids
    kid 1 with an esfp is an esfp
    kid 2 with an estp is an enfj-however dad's mom was an enfj.

    my sister law, the estp has a kid with an esfj. haha, they had an estj kid
    so se,ti, fe plus fe,si,ne equals te, si, ne. like mom was carrying a recessive te from her dad?

    this would be so much more straightforward if everyone had like fourteen kids...

    Dad: INFP
    Mum: INTJ
    Big brother no. 1: ISTP
    Big brother no. 2: INFP
    Big Sister: ISFP
    Me: INFP

    Three INFPs in one family... wow! :O But I don't think this is genetic; maybe partly, but definitely not completely. Me and my brother take after dad, but for example my dad doesn't take after his parents at all.
    Her head hung down
    Gazed at earth, finally keen,
    As the rabbit at the stoat,
    Till the earth was sky,
    Sky that was green,
    And brown clouds passed
    Like chestnut leaves along the ground.

    Exclamation Well....

    me:INTP
    Mom:ENTJ
    Dad:INTP
    Stepdad:ISTJ
    Half sister:ISFP

    My dad, maternal Grandfather are both INTP. I have an INTx uncle, as well.
    I did not grow up in a house with any of these men, so there probably is a genetic component, then considering INTP is one of the more unusual types.
    My stepdad's family(including my half-sister above who I grew up with) are mostly ISxx, which also points toward a genetic component. My maternal grandma and her daugher-my aunt are also both ISFJ, I believe, so my sister actually gets the ISxx thing from both sides, just like I have INTPs on both sides. My mom being ENTJ is a bit of a mystery.

    Unfortunately you can't do a science project on MBTI anymore than you can do a science project on Creationism.

    For both MBTI and Creationism are unfalsifiable. And so do not come under the purview of science.

    I do understand though that some of your schools do teach biology and Creationism as science, so perhaps your school also teaches MBTI and psychometrics as science.

    Paternal grandfather: ISTP
    Paternal grandmother: ISFJ
    Dad: INFP
    Dad's sister: ESFJ

    Maternal grandfather: ISTP
    Maternal grandmother: ESFJ
    Mom: ESFJ
    Mom's older sister: ENFJ
    Mom's younger sister: ISTJ
    Mom's brother: ENTP

    Me: INTJ
    Older half-sister: INFP (different mother)
    Younger sister: ESFP
    Younger brother: ESTP

    All of these types are speculative on my part, so there may be some error. Even still, I don't believe there is a correlation.
