    MBTI type of your family's dynamic

    Not the MBTI type of each of the individuals of the family, but the family as a whole, or as a unit - or your family environment growing up.

    My own:

    Dysfunctional I
    Dysfunctional N
    I'm at a complete loss in the T/F spectrum, so I'll pick D for Dysfunctional
    Dysfunctional P

    I would say INTX with the X being represented by my brother and I being Js to P parents (bloody hippies!)

    E
    S - At least more S than N
    X - I have no clue on T vs. F
    P - My family is useless at making plans. Everyone likes to wait for someone else to make the plans. It's almost like a game of who can hold out the longest before breaking and throwing a plan idea out there so everyone can criticize it.

    E: 3/5
    X: 2/5 plus one
    F: 3/5
    J: 3/5

    IXTP: Me
    ISTJ: Brother
    ENFJ: Mom
    ESFJ: Father
    ENFP: Sister

    Makes sense considering I have a ESFJ father and an ENFJ mother.
    But your individuality and your present need will be swept away by change,
    and what you now ardently desire will one day become the object of abhorrence.

    My family today (spouse and 2 kids) would be defined by a giant "I" standing in solidarity to the people while "P" and "J" mud wrestle in the street.

    My family growing up would be defined by an I, E, S, N, T, F, J and P all fighting a world war with double agents and defections occurring on a weekly basis.

    I will write it in terms of upside and downside for each MBTI dichotomy.

    Healthy E - friendly, warm, sociable
    Unhealthy S - insatiable appetite for things material, for the senses
    Unhealthy F - too much of too much,p. Stressful.
    Unhealthy J - "there's a place for everything and everything in its place, including your hair". I said unhealthy because decisions are not thought through. Hustling was and still is a valuable skill.

    I never felt I belong growing up. I always find a reason to be away most of my high school and college years, mostly school stuff. I think now I am more appreciative of my family, though half of them still annoys me.
    We cling to our past as if they define us. What we do defines us.

    My family growing up was mostly INTP, I think...though only 2 of the seven of us are actual INTPs.

    My current wife and kids situation is probably ISFP, even though none of us seems to be an actual sensor. More just a product of having young kids. The F probably occurs for the same reason, though there are at least 2 definite feelers in our pack, too.

    If the INTP type had another 16th that was INTP squared, and then shuffled vigorously with the null set, and then an ESFJ slapped in the middle.
