    Default Heredity of Personality Type: the type of your mother, father and yours?

    So what is the personality type of your mother, your father and your type?

    What about your grandparents on your mother side and father side?

    Please write your formula:
    MOTHER TYPE + FATHER TYPE = YOUR TYPE

    MOTHER SIDE:
    GRANDPA TYPE + GRANDMA TYPE = YOUR MOTHER TYPE

    FATHER SIDE:
    GRANDPA TYPE + GRANDMA TYPE = YOUR FATHER TYPE

    Let´s see if there are any significant correlation or patterns.

    Thanks.

    ESFJ (mom) + ISXJ (dad) = INTP (me!)

    I don't see much of a correlation there. Hmm...

    I have no idea what my grandparents' types are. My dad's parents died before my parents got married. I don't know my mom's parents that well.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    Is it possible that functions are hereditary but the order in which they are developed is based upon life experience?

    Oh...anyway ESFP + ExTP = Me

    Mom's parents: ISTJ + ISFx

    Dad's parents: No idea

    However, I can tell you that there seem to be an inordinate number of FP women in my family.

    And there are possibly THREE NFs amongst me and my sisters, with two possibly being SFP, my mother being ESFP and I showing some vauguely SP traits though I'm NF.

    My parents were older when they got married and started to litter the five of us, with me as the youngest. So I don't remember my grandparents much beyond nice or evil, since they passed away when I was young.

    ISFP + ESTJ = ENTJ
    Nice but self-indulgent + overly nice doormat = ISFP
    Nice but absent + Evil bitch (Si high for sure, xSTJ) = ESTJ

    ISFJ (SiFe) + ENTP (NeTi) = INFP (FiNe)

    Neither of my parents prefer Fi. My sisters is ESFP, and neither of my parents prefer Se either.

    MOTHER SIDE:
    ISTJ grandpa (SiTe) + ESFJ grandma (FeSi) = ISFJ mom

    It should be noted that all of their other children are Ns (INTP, INFJ & ENFP).

    You're missing variables.

    enfp mom + intp dad = infp me

    esfp grandma + istj grandpa = enfp mom+ istp uncle

    my dad's mom died young and i don't know much about her, and his dad is completely and totally pussy whipped by his 2nd wife so if he has any personality left i'm not sure what type it would be (she's a batshit insane esfj)

    This has been done before here in the forums, but don't think we found any correlations, not based on the small number of data anyway. I think if a mass data was done, we might be able to find something.

    ENFJ + ISTJ = INFP

    MOTHER SIDE:
    ? + SXJ = ENFJ

    FATHER SIDE:
    INFX + ESXJ = ISTJ

    Out of all my extended family members, I like my grandfather the best. He is very similar to my father, but more spacey and very, very mellow. He is so sweet and unassuming.

    My grandmother is loud and blunt, always smiling and laughing, not touchy-feely, quite critical, a tough woman who can take it.

    My brother may be another ISTJ, however, like my father.

    Mother (ISFJ) + father (ESFP) = me (INFJ) + sister (ESFJ)

    Mother's side:
    Pa (ISTP) + Nan (isFJ) = mother (ISFJ) + aunt (ESFP) + uncle (ESTP)

    Father's side:
    Unknown

    And in addition to this, for interest's sake:

    Maternal uncle (ESTP) + aunt (ESFJ) = older female cousin (EsFJ) + younger female cousin (ISFP)
