    I think my ISTJ dad probably would have been a good dad for me, except for the fact that he was under the impression that taking care of kids was the mother's department. This probably was a major cause of conflict with an INFP whose whole thing was rebelling against an upbringing that saw being an ISFJ as the ultimate model of womanhood, i.e., the virgin Mary.
    This is not going to go the way you think....

    My ENTJ dad was the same way. The only attention he gave us was directed at my brothers and doing "guy things" with them. "I'm the dad, so I have to teach my sons woodworking and fishing. My daughters... can stay in the kitchen with their mother." To this day, my dad knows next to nothing about me, because he's never bothered to learn. Once, when he was talking about sailing, I told him that I liked nautical fiction, and he looked at me like I'd sprouted another head. Because girls aren't supposed to like tall wooden sailing ships.

    Needless to say, I'm not convinced that fathers are all that essential.

    I am sorry about that.

    Its not an unpopular view.

    My dad was on the swim team and had a letterman jacket in high school. He never taught me to swim. I sort of learned through other places, but I'm not really a good swimmer.

    My mom was the one that taught me how to ride a bike. My dad couldn't be bothered, but it probably would have helped him, I think.

    I try not to wallow about it anymore. The past is the past, and it could have been much worse.

    I get really anxious when things are too nice, too polished, too ideal, too good.

    I think about this a lot. I agree in certain situations this is true.

    Sometimes I think that there is something really wrong with me.

    Aw man, that sucks-- I'm sorry you were so dismissed. My Dad was seriously absent, but at least when he was there he encouraged me to be and do what I love (whatever it was). I think caring, loving, encouraging fathers are essential (just like mothers). I think across the board, everyone could do without the negative aspects of their parents, but it makes us who we are. My Mom put me more in the "girls do this" box than my Dad did, actually.
