    My granddad was probably an NT. He taught me about atoms and stuff! It's kind of cool knowing rather advanced chemistry and physics when you're still in primary school and it did spark my interest in science and philosophy. I only saw him about twice a year though, so I don't consider him to be a 'mentor' in my life, just an influence. He past away a little over a year ago.

    I think my uncle is an NT as well, a chemist in profession and an amateur astronomer. He gave some quite interesting lectures on how elements heavier than Helium were formed in stars and came to earth. But he lives even further away and I saw him even less then my granddad in my youth.

    I wish I had an NT mentor. My parents are both Ss and that was pretty much my only family around growing up.

    My NT father was the furthest thing from being a mentor.

    The only thing he possibly did to "mentor" me was force/facilitate me to be more rational, to the extent that he found, discredited and crushed all the idealistic and "irrational" tendencies of mine *almost* out of me.

    Loved my family.

    INTJ dad and I could nerd out about shit together. These days we love talking money together.

    Hated my peer group for the most part. Growing up ENTJ isn't easy.

    I had the opposite problem, I think. My father is off and on rational/irrational (I'm thinking maybe ISTP) so I never knew what to expect, probably causing me to be a more cautious, secretive, contingency planner than I would have been otherwise.

But, I look back at times when I was a teenager and had no clue about MBTI and I remember how truly awesome my conversations were with my grandfather. We could talk for hours about this, that, and the other, completely oblivious to what the rest of the family was doing in the other room. We were from 2 different eras - he was old-school and I was a punk teenager who didn't give a flip, but man the conversation sure flowed nicely between us.

    I guess if nothing else I'm just having a moment of remembering how cool he really was. Of course the rest of the fam is just as much family as him, but he has a really special place because of that sometimes unexplainable NT connection. Stories? Love to hear them.

    Aw, that's sweet

    My dad is probably the closest thing I ever had to that. He's also INTJ. Growing up we had kind of a cool dynamic in that he knows a little bit about a lot of things and I always wanted to learn just about anything, so he would teach me about history, guns, sewing, what have you. Even now that I'm older I always take a passive stance in conversations and think of him as a mentor, because if I don't we get along like an immovable object and an unstoppable force :P
