    My mom is INTJ but I don't really notice any negative feelings towards INTJs in general. I wouldn't be surprised if my ESFP sister has negative feelings towards NTJs with an INTJ mother and ENTJ father. She hates how my parents try to understand every aspect of our lives and she argues with all of us over how none of us do things the right way.

    my mum is an ISTJ. i don't dislike that type because of it. she is our J-anchor - the rest of my family are quite P.

    i was raised amongst IXTXs... we don't talk about our feelings much. i was suspcious of feelers for a long time - i felt like they were trying to manipulate me with their emoting and opening up

    mum - ISTJ
    dad - INTP
    older brother - ISTP

    i was always the fruity/different attention seeking one, but can converse most naturally with dad. strangely my whole family are also left handed and i'm right. i think i might have turned out to be more gregarious if there was another E in my family to bounce off.

    my mother is an infj and i have a very positive view of the type...she's otherworldly beautiful deep down in her soul.

    My mom is ESFJ. I tend to get along well with other ESFJ females who are older than I am, so I would say it has had a positive effect My mom and I are extremely different but very close. She is open minded and accepting of my weirdness so it works. We talk about a lot of things and we can turn to each other for support. I wouldn't say we have a ton of deep discussions, but I can get that from my INTJ husband and my N type friends!

    I think mothers are often mis-typed by their children. Just like you would mist-type a co-worker because you only see them in one specific context. I think it is only much later in life (and even then not always) that we start to see our parents as their own persons, apart from their relationship with us or feel comfortable learning about their whole life (including what they were like before marriage or before rearing us)

    I see a lot of people on the forum type their mothers as Fe doms. That seems to be an over-representation of Fe doms for moms. Particularly, there are more XSFJ moms than any other type. ^_^

    I think assuming a mom job is to be protective and nurturing (or overbearing :P) and take on "XSFJ traits" might help suss out what type your mother really was or is.

    ^ There are also more SFJ women than any other type.....something between 30-35% of women are said to be SFJ.

    As much as 40%-50% of the population is SJ, and while SFJ women are most common I seriously don't understand also when people say they've never met an SFJ man. I'm like

    I dunno, maybe SFJ men are more common in the South for some reason, either due to culture or a particular kind of overrepresented genetic thing.

    Yes, I just admitted that some genes are "overrepresented" in the South.

    That's a nice way of putting it.

    I think it's just that so many people in the south seem ESFJ, because "southern hospitality" pretty much means "acting ESFJ"
