    Um, no. That's why twin studies are so valuable for psychologists trying to figure out the influence of genes on personality. I've never heard anybody suggest that the genetic contributions to personality relate to the kind of simple inheritance mechanisms that tend to cause children to match parents.

    Theoretically, introversion could be 100% genetic and, while that would mean that an introvert's identical twin would also be an introvert, both their parents could be extraverts.

    I'm not saying that it isn't likely that, to the extent that personality is genetic, a person will be at least midly more likely to match one or both parents on one or more dimensions than to match neither. But "mildly more likely" doesn't mean there can't be a lot of non-matches.

    Jung believed personality was inborn, and one of the things he pointed to in support of that notion was the fact that two children of the same parents could have such strikingly different personalities. To Jung, that indicated that it was unlikely that how a child was raised was the primary determinant of personality.

    Decades of twin studies have been done since Jung wrote and, as it sounds like you already know, those studies strongly suggest that genes account for around half (or more) of the kinds of relatively stable personality dimensions measured by the MBTI and Big Five.

    And the most counterintuitive conclusion that's been drawn from the cumulative data is that how your parents raise you has almost no influence on your basic temperament — e.g., whether you'll end up an INTJ. Identical twins raised in the same household are not significantly more alike (in terms of temperament) than identical twins raised in separate households.

    Please write your formula:
    ENTJ + INTP = INTP

    Sibling: ISTP

    MOTHER SIDE:
    ISFJ mom + ENTJ dad = ENTJ

    Siblings: ISTP, INTP f, INTP m, ESTP

    FATHER SIDE:
    ENTP dad + ENFJ mom = INTP

    Siblings: ENFJ, ISTJ

    ISFJ (mother) + INTJ (father) = INFP (me)

    Maternal Grandparents:
    My grandma died when I was really young and I don't know my grandpa that well...

    Paternal Grandparents:
    XSXJ (grandpa) + XXFP (grandma) = my dad

    These are just conjectures.

    Mother - ESFJ (quite an obvious one)

    Father - ISxP or ISxJ (certainly an introvert although unlike me, he doesn't mind being an extrovert in social gatherings [I refuse simply because I don't like being fake, unless it's of my own accord], can't discern whether he's Se or Si, he has a knack for riding in roller coasters and performing action-oriented activities, says he enjoys the adrenaline that accompanies, what does that indicate...? Also finds importance in rules, he once scolded me for taking a bath in the evening [a similar incident occurred when he caught me brushing my teeth after taking a bath, he thinks it's wrong to not brush your teeth before taking a bath], saying, "There's a time for everything! You can't just do them on a whim!", stereotypically this might be ascribed to the fallacious assumption that Si is all about rules and tradition, maybe it's just a Ti principle based on Fe (everyone else also does this!)?)

    Sister - ESFP (probably, it's curious how different our persuasion styles are, she relies on brute force and physical motivation while I rely on diverting the other person's attention to future benefits and possibilities [which never seems to work on her, the converse also being true], one could also say I'm much more tactful or diplomatic even though she's the one who's more concerned about things like harmony, curious indeed)

    Grandfather - ESTJ (just a hunch... I do detect Te)

    Grandmother - xxFJ (Leaning towards Si here, ironically, her persistent attempts to help me unintentionally end up antagonizing me, I appreciate her efforts but she overdoes them to the extent they become intrusive)

    Me - xNxP (leaning towards xNTP, perhaps even INxJ, dunno)
