    Default Is it HEREDITARY?

    Is personality hereditary?

    If two.. let's say ENFPs get a child, is that child likely also to be an ENFP?

    Roll debate!

    Just check the threads where people list types in their family tree. Good luck finding any useful info.

    Ah, I thought I should have added "sorry if this is something discussed before". Thank you for the info.

    My guess would be a "mostly no." I would suspect that your childhood environment would shape how certain traits are expressed and how well people have developed the different functions more than anything.

    Ok. It is interesting, and maybe impossible to answer. If you see similarities in the parents' and the children's personality, it could also be because they're just affected by their parents socially.

    And, could someone please link me to the threads where family trees are shown?
