    This is a family who is following a the cookie-cutter middle class ambition.

    They are feeling satisfied with the fact that they are fitting in.

    The kid will probably stay here until he moves out to go to college.

    Aside from the fact that they're all holding each other, it doesn't gel with the fact that the boy and the father have nothing in common. I'm left wondering if he is his son. Maybe he's the stepfather. The picture itself does not look dark to me.

    Good point Ne, not very affectionate.

    The house is yellow (I like yellow houses) and has pretty white window pane things (I like those, too).

    It is nicely landscaped, but it looks like those steps aren't used regularly because there is a plant growing across them.

    The mom and the boy are dressed nice in matching outfits. The man (dad?) doesn't match at all and looks (comparatively) like a slob.

    They are looking at the house and considering buying it, which is why there is still a For Sale sign up.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    That is a very good point! Kind of glossed over that fact.

    Ne is not very affectionate? Or the people.

    I think the people look affectionate enough.
    But either he's a mama's boy, or there's some really severe boundaries in that family.

    The boy is dressed like his mother and has blonde hair, he's dressed up in the same style she is, while the father is relaxed and casual and dark-haired. That is not a typical pattern because (1) a boy typically wants to be relaxed and fun, not wearing dressing clothes on a typically nice day outside, esp pastels (!) and (2) he tends to want to emulate his dad instead, especially if the dad is fun and relaxed, and (3) the dad typically won't want his only son to not emulate him, he gets annoyed if his wife has "taken over his son," and (4) the mom is the centering force here that brings them together... or the separating force between man and son that keeps them apart, so... (5) not really sure how the weird pattern here fits in with a "happy" family.

    The whole thing seems staged, it doesn't fit natural patterns.
    It just doesn't look right.

    If you're referring to my MBTI listing, I'd offer you the same advice.
