my mom is an INTP . . . so now that i'm older everything finally makes sense . . . seeing how most everyones moms are xSFJs . . . when i was a teen i was embarrassed for having a mom that wears her hair very short, no makeup & wears very bland clothing - i was terrified that i would grow up to look like her (unfeminine) and was very mean to her for a bunch of years (and of course she wouldn't react to any of my meanness) she never gave her opinion about anything i did or would choose unless i pushed & pushed her to do so. now that i'm older i see my friends having a friendship with their mothers doing girly things like going out to lunch & getting pedicures together . . . nope we are not like that. growing up my mom always told me that she didn't understand me & when i was emoting, crying & being a hysterical teenager she always said she didn't know how to help me. she is a great person though & would do anything for me . . . i would just have sit her down & yell & scream in her face for an hour straight in order to get any reaction. that's the only thing that ever worked with her.
