    My best friend is an INFJ, her family was very P-ish. Her mom is super duper emotional and wishy washy and her dad was a pandhandling musician. Not a lot of stability. She's super duper rigid and efficient. Very rules/organized driven.

    I am an INFP, my mother I believe possibly is an ISTJ she was very detached from us, but we were clean and fed and things were always in order. My dad was extremely comntrolling and abusive. I remember never playing with my toys because my mom would freak if the room got messed up. I would just sit and long to play with the dusty little creatures on the shelf.

    I don't know how that all effects personality, but I'm sure there is some overlap between genetics and environment.

    Very much disagree. I had strict/controlling parents.

    My parents were very strict. ESPECIALLY as far as academics go. From the time I was a small child to highschool... My stepfather used to make up extra homework/tests for me to complete outside of class because he felt that public school didn't give enough work. So every day I was expected to do several hours worth of work after I got home from class. If I wrote my homework in handwriting that was too messy, my stepfather would grab a dictionary and make me copy pages upon pages from it in the neatest handwriting I could. I was also forced to play 5 difference instruments for enrichment. I was not allowed to watch TV unless it was History channel/Discovery channel documentaries. I didn't really have a lot of time to hang out with friends.

    I always wanted to go into Art. I drew all the time, and my school offered a ton of art classes as well as "art majors". When I was younger, I was told I wasn't allowed to take art classes. I legitimately wanted to pursue digital/graphic design as a career rather than biology when I got to highschool. I was told that art is not a legitimate career and I wasn't allowed to take graphic design classes.

    That's the general overview. But I'm very J.

    ESFJ mother, ESTP father. I'm a P, sister is a J, younger brother will likely be a P. We have an extremely lax household. Oddly enough, I think we're all going to turn out to be intuitives as well. Also, all introverts.
