    Oldest J here.

    my sib is a J, too.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    My oldest child's a P and my youngest is a J. My husband and his brother are both P's. My Mom has three siblings and I'm pretty sure they're all P's. My Dad is the youngest of four and he's a J. I never knew his oldest brother (killed in WWII) but the second oldest was a J and the next a P. My MIL and her brother are both J's. My FIL is the oldest and a P, and I'm not sure about his brother but I'd guess he's also P. Based on my very informal survey of my relatives, I don't believe birth order influences personality type!

    P.S. Just to be fair, I'm the oldest and I'm a J. My sister is also a J. My brother, the youngest, is a P.

    Sorry, I messed up. Read E for Eldest (I'm such a P, didn't even read the OP properly). :grin"

    I should have marked OP.

    Oldest (half-brother): ENTJ, 15 year age gap
    Older sister: EsFJ, 3 year age gap
    Me: ENTP

    My brother and sister are two of the most J-est people I know. I have a lot of P traits, but I plan and organize, too.

    Father - not sure of his type, but definitely an IxxJ (strong J) - I'm beginning to suspect he's ISFJ

    Mother - strong ISTJ

    Me - compared to my brother, I'm a definite J. INFJ

    Brother (almost 3 yrs younger than I) - INTP

    My EP should also be an OP.

    My whole family are Js... I guess that's not much help for the theory... but I'm the least J member of my family even though I'm the eldest (or only child if you go by the 7 year difference rule). My younger brother (7 years apart) is an ESFJ. My mother and father are ISFJ and ISTJ, respectively.

    How the hell am I supposed to decide if I'm J or j. I think there are more gradients in between "J out the A" and "questionable J." I'm definitely J but more so in my dealings with people. When it comes to anything else, especially keeping a clean environment, I'm very P. I'm really only ever on-time to official things like work and appointments. When it comes to going to a friends house, I don't even look at the clock. I take my sweet ass time. Overall, I'd say my J is kind of like being libertarian. Conservative and J-like in some ways, Liberal in others.

    Other than that rant, I'm kind of sort of the oldest. My mom had a kid in her previous marriage who I hadn't met till recently (he's the oldest, probably an ESFJ, and 100% wienerboy.) I'm eNFj overall and my younger sis is EsTJ. So I don't think that there's much to this theory. Rather than nurture this is most likely nature. The more assertive sperm (you know the ones that have plans and wear little watches) were the ones that got there first and made us babies! :P

    You sound like a moderate J. What makes people Js is directing the Judging function (T or F) outward into interactions with the external world--J types have Te or Fe as one of their top two functions (and Si or Ni as the other.)

    So Judgers have a more open/perceptive side but it's kept inwardly most of the time and only allowed to direct Te/Fe's efforts...this explains why you would show an organized attitude toward others but not as much toward yourself.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
