    Default STPs: What type is your father?

    And did you admire him for anything?

    My brother is an STP and his father is an ISTJ.

    I have no idea he admires him. I certainly do.

    xSTJ: he used to be an ISTJ as a young adult, but his "gab" has definitely developed.

    His values of family and hard work that he taught his children had made me an ISJ child and ISTJ in my late teens, but it is apparent that I value principle and logic more while he values practicality. It's actually because of him that I realized that I was a bit more intuitive than the average ISTJ, hence IxTJ.

    Both my brother and my sister are ENFJ like our mother, so I don't know whats up with that.

    I haven't gotten around to giving a test.. Maybe I should. He's more disciplined than I am. He was in the military for 30 years. So whatever the case, he's embodied a lot of STJ qualities because of that.

    I admire him for being really unselfish. And it's cool how he can squeeze out potential out of bureaucracies and systems. Things that seem so full of "red tape" to most people. He's one of those people who makes all the right calls for getting different types of grants, benefits, etc.. Things like that. I don't think it's just because of military training. One of his good friends is an injured veteran, who's never taken advantage of what he's offered. I overheard my dad kind of get on his case about it. Most people are like his friend (including me).

    My father is definetly an FJ. ISFJ maybe, but he has some ENFJ traits.

    Ande yes, I admired him, he reminded me Mufasa from the Lion King, and we were very close and had a lot of complicity, like in the movie. Later I became a rebelious teenager and he has psychological issues, health issues and unemployment issues, our relationship turn to a daily hell. Don't really want to develop on this. Now it's going better though.

    my older brother is STP, and dad is ISTJ
    my dad admires my brother a lot. A LOT.
    i don't know about my brother. i think so,
    in his way.

    my dad is an ISTJ too.
    We didn't get on much when I was a teenager. I was too busy doing whatever the hell I wanted.
    Lately in life I have developed respect for him. He is such a good and honest man. I think he has developed respect for me too. I think when I was younger he thought he would have a nightmare child forever, but I know he appreciates that one way or another I have done things my way, always worked to make enough to live and never asked him for anything.
    So yeah, now we definitely aren't close but I think we have some kind of mutual respect.

    ENTJ who thinks he's INTJ.

    I admire some of his traits, but not most of them.
