    ISFJ Mum (SiFe) + ISTP Dad (TiSe) = INFP Me (FiNe) + ESTJ sister (TeSi)

    Mother's side
    ISTJ Grandfather (SiTe) + ISTJ Grandmother (SiTe) = ISFJ Mum (SiFe) + ESTJ (TeSi) + ISTJ (SiTe) aunts

    Father's side
    ESTP Grandfather (SeTi) + ISTJ Grandmother (SiTe) = ISTP Dad (TiSe) + ESFJ (FeSi) + ESTP (SeTi) + ISTJ (SiTe) uncles


    Basically there's a whole lot of Si but no dom/aux Fi or Ne in my family. I must be a mutant.

    But seriously, I believe functions are just like other genetic traits; they have dominant and recessive genes. I guess I got the recessive genes.

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    As Rebe said, this has been done several times, but it is always interesting to see.

    INFJ Dad + ENTP Mum = INTP (me), ISFP sister and ENTJ brother

    INTJ grandpa + ESFP grandma = ENTP Mum (she got along with him better than with her)

    ESTJ grandpa + ISFJ grandma = INFJ Dad (he did not at all get along with him)

    ESTP Dad + ISFJ Mom = INTP (me) + ISFJ sister

    ESTJ Poppop + ISFJ Nana = ISFJ mother (mom and nana were very much alike)

    ISTJ Poppop + IxFP Nana = ESTP father (dad revered his mom and hated his father for much his life... but his mom died when he was in his 30's)


    Bonus:
    INTP (me) + ISFJ (ex) = INTP son + ESFP son + INFJ daughter (altho daughter was adopted)

    ISTJ Dad + ISTJ Mom = ISTP daughter (What's sad is my ESTJ stepdad and ISTJ mom having an ADD ENFP son. Figure that one out. Poor kid.)

    ESTJ Grandpa + ISFJ Grandma = ISTJ Dad
    I don't know my mom's parents well enough to try to type them, but I think they're both IxTx. I should ask my mom what they're like. All I know is that although they're on good terms now, she did not get along with her mom growing up.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    ENFJ (m) + ISTJ (f) = ENTP

    Grandparents died so long ago, that I can only remember that they were a bunch of SJ's and SP's.

    Ah, this thread reminds me of an interesting point I [re]learned from a book a few weeks ago, re. genetics and differences between male and female. The book states that there are some significant ties to Cognition found on the X sex chromosomes (the Y chromosome apparently doesn't have a whole of importance for men, other than a few genes which indicate the path to 'male', and the Y chromosome has been losing genes over time at a startling rate. I'm simplifying, but this is the gist).

    This is interesting because: Females will have certain genes on the X chromosome from their mother turned on, and certain other genes on the X chromosome from their father turned on. So the female is influenced by both mother and father - more of a mix. Whereas males will only have the X genes from their mother.

    IF a fair amount of ones cognitive processing/traits reside on the X, perhaps translating into mbti-lingo, with females perhaps it's a tossup as to whether father/mother's line will have more influence? Whereas with males, perhaps it's more directly tied to mother's side only? The author was basically making the point, tongue-in-cheek, that there may be genetic truth to the phrase 'momma's boy'.

    (hehe. This is all to say - there's a lot genetically that isn't terribly straightforward - most especially when trying to tie to mbti and the like )

    -------------------------------

    To the OP:

    My Mom: ISTJ
    My Dad: ISFJ
    Me: INFJ
    Brother: INTP
    Mom's Mom: ISFx
    Mom's Dad: ISTJ
    Mom's Sister: ISTP
    Dad's Mom: ESFJ
    Dad's Dad: INTJ
    Dad's Sister: Absolutely no idea. Some form of xNTx.

    ESFJ (Mama) + ISTP (Dad) = INTP (me), ESTJ (sister--up until recently, I thought she was ENTJ--no way!), and ESFP (sister)

    Possible ISFP (grandfather) + ESFJ (grandmother) = ESFJ (mother)

    Possible INFP (grandfather) + EXTJ (grandmother) = ISTP (dad)

    Adding a Jennifer-style bonus:

    INTP (me) + ESFJ (ex) = ISFP (son), XNFJ (daughter), INXP (son), EXTJ (son).
