    Why assume? That's what tests are for.

    I know one of my parents is an ESFJ (tested). The other was probably xSTP - definitely not a guardian, at any rate - they are pretty easy to identify, tbf.

    SJ?

    Yea I'm going with the over.

    Theres certainly not that many NTs

    SP's are the fun parents.

    NPs excluding T's are the ones that sort of stand out in one way or another.

    This is the percentage chart I've seen most often - putting the overall percentage of SJ's in the population at around 45%, pretty close to Hmm's "almost 50%".

    I think that many "parental" behaviors match up with "SJ" behavior, but I don't think that it necessarily follows that people just assume that their parents are SJ's - *especially* once you get older (adult age). I think that people often can mis-project the types of others that they don't know well (especially co-workers and other people you see in very structured environments), but your parents? Most people almost certainly, by the time they're adults, know their parents well enough to understand what "parental" behavior is natural for them, and what they may do because it works - and let's face it, a lot of stereotypical "SJ" behavior really does work well in many parenting situations (stability, consistency, etc.). That's not even going into the fact that just because someone "is" a certain type, that not every behavior and action is reflective of that.

    Of course, both my parents *are* SJ's, and pretty strong ones, at that. So what do I know :P.

    It's possible but for most people here, I doubt it.

    My father was INTJ, he was tested.

    My mother operated daily as a strong J, merciless about details and organization of stuff, to the point of breakdown if all the clothes don't face the same way in the closet. What you can see, hear, taste and touch is all that matters. etc. But she also had some serious problems so it's not clear if that was some shadow having taken over or what.

    Maybe it does have more to do with miscommunication between you and your parents, though of course that's been discussed to death. The tendency to believe that if they don't understand you, they must be a very different type.

    That is, after all, what Personality-Type systems try to illustrate in the first place. The same thing, but in reverse: "they are a very different type, which is why they have trouble understanding you."

    I've usually gotten along well with my parents, and I'm pretty sure they're both Sensors.

    If they are dead or they refuse to take the test then all that's left is assumption.

    My MIL won't take even the online tests. She says people will get your juju if they know too much about you.
