    My dad is an INFP to the core, but my mom is a bit tougher to type. Before I ever asked her about type, I always thought of her in my mind as like an ENFJ. When she took the test she got ENTP, and then later on when I was talking about an ENFP, she said something to the nature of "Oh I think I might be one of those, actually"

    I'm pretty sure, in fact, that the quote is almost verbatim.

    My mother is INFJ, my father is ENTP.

    My mother is INFJ, and I don't know my father's type. xxTP - he died when I was 13 so I don't have much to go on.

    My mom's the only NF in a family full of NTs and STJs. I think that's probably hard.

    Father: ISFP
    Mother: ESFP

    Over the past semester I saw my dad and his side of the family, and having met him in person, he's an ISFP.

    My mom is a self-professed "adrenaline-junkie." Her job as an EMT satisfies that well, I figure, although she is going to school...for something.

    My mother is an abusive ESFP, we're polar opposites. My father was aparently an ISFJ (I have his original MBTI test). My stepdad was an I and that's all I know. Mother may be ESTP, come to think of it. Probably is.

    I've never seen a "parent" in my mother and my biological father died when I was 9. My stepdad isn't in the picture anymore either, so I think I subconciously relate to some of my teachers or friends' parents as "parental figures". I know the ones I'm closest to were an INFP, two INT's of some sort(both male), and most likely an ENFP, though only one has been tested.

    Then again its not what I prefer, its what I'm given.

    Father: ISTJ
    Mother: INFJ (schizophrenic, difficult to type)

    I'm similar like this in that I see my close friend's parents more like a parental figure to me then my real parents. My mother skipped out of my life when I was five. My father was an abusive alcoholic (although he's cleaned up a lot in the past few years).

    Yeah. I dunno, there's these periods where I see myself as better off for learning how to deal on my own and such, but other times where I actually get almost mad (if it can be called anger) because of how much my friends have with their parents.

    Do you ever get that?

    Pretty much. I do get a bit envious of the traditional healthy family image. But then I think, "Oh well."

    My father is ESFP and my mother is ISTJ, and they get along swimmingly. Nobody in my family drinks or smokes and everybody is (relatively) sane.

    The two of you feel free to envy me.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.
