    Maybe, every individual is an exception, though

    I know identical twins, one is ESFJ and the other is INFJ (duals whoa). Of course some of the similarities transcend their types.

    Very true. Plus, some (non-typology) studies suggest that identical twins raised together are more different than identical twins raised apart. It makes sense to me, since I didn't want to compete with my identical twin in every area. Plus, I wanted to establish my own independent identity.

    I think it *is* largely inherited, but I've also seen some real "which one of these is not like the others" in my time. My ENTJ best friend is the lone intuitive in her family, but her grandfather was very likely an INFP. Maybe it jumped a generation. Who knows. I do believe in a strong hereditary factor.

    It's very rare that identicals experience such a wide split in type. I would be interested to see their parents and to know if they were truly monozygotic. There are apparently three types of twins now - monozygotic, dizygotic, and a third new category that is so strange I can't even comprehend it.

    My identical twin and I are registered with two scholarly/research organizations for twins. It's been very enlightening and we've even participated in some of their experiments.

    I would say that at most it is 'loosely inheritable', meaning that there are many factors that are influential before and after sperm and egg meet. Before: epigenetic factors can alter the way genes are expressed in the offspring; after: uterine and postpartum environmental influences.

    She's an ENFP and posts here as LadyJaye.

    I know two other identical pairs IRL - one is an INTP - ENFP set. One is an INTP - ENTP set.

    I'm an INFJ

    with ENTJ and ISFJ parents.

    I think I was supposed to be INFP or ENFP, but the I and J environment made me who I am.
