Hm okay. Well ya, I am a more traditional esfj. If I were a mom that had to deal with it I would do my best to give my son free reign over his life but somewhere my own beliefs would come up- that I dont think being gay is right or healthy and that they should choose Christ instead, if you really want the cold-cut truth. Its taken time but Im pretty good at not overshooting peoples boundaries. If we're going to disagree I wont push it and I know how to still care about the person while we may disagree completely because you can love from a distance. Maybe a feeler is more prone to seeing things from a judeo-christian perspective, idk. These days it could go either way Im sure though I am very strong in my beliefs.
Something you may find interesting- I usually dont share my faith here on the forum and usually try to avoid it at all costs because I know that the things I say are controversial.
So if you plan to make the mom something like an esfj (which its awesome that your interest in mbti is intersecting with your creative endeavors) then you can observe
1 that i try to withhold anything too offensive
2 am neurotic by nature (we can blame Ne for that)
3 a traditional and HEALTHY esfj will care but not be too clingy about things
maybe that can help you
also, i work with alot of lgbt people at my retail store and theyre nice to me. i wasn't sure they had any depth from previous observations but of course they do cuz theyre people though alot of the ones i work with seem kind of snobbish and seem like they like to be that way but I usually find it more entertaining than offensive.
again just trying to add
if you use a traditional mother, i think big-time writers generally paint faith in an overtly humorous maybe even negative light when it comes to people of faith. what hue do you plan to paint this story in? is it slightly tragic and soulsearchy, understated and indie-ish?
