  1. [INTP] INTP child with ESFJ+INTP parents?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I am aware that there are multiple threads of this tag; however, I would like to see how people can relate to my personal version of it, and I also just need to get this all out of my head. Let me begin with my father, who is an INTP. He used to have a drinking problem (which is very...
  2. [INTP] ISFJ Father, ESFJ Mother and INTP Child

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    It appears that my father is officially an ISFJ and my mother is officially an ESFJ. Given those factors, I sometimes wonder how I ended up becoming an INTP. I know we share the same functions. The order's just different, but that difference makes all the difference apparently. I've heard that...
  3. ESFJ Mom

    Myers Briggs Forum
    My mom is a very strong ESFJ, she's never taken the test because obviously personality types don't exist and everyone is just like her, but she fits it perfectly - with the guilt trips and everything. As an IXTJ, she really bothers me and I was just wondering if there're any ways to help deal...
  4. [INFJ] Am I part of your crew?

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors

    Advice Center
    Okay so I'm a 14 year old ENTJ who's been through depression and has abusive parents (ESFJ mom and ESFP dad). Oh and I have an ISFP sister with learning disabilities who just goes with everything. My mom has beaten me with a belt since I was 4 until I was around 7. She stopped because I was...
  6. [ESFJ] Urgent question about ESFJ parent!

    ESFJ Forum - The Caregivers
    My mom is an ESFJ and can be super over-controlling sometimes. Tomorrow is New Years Eve and I really don't want to go to any parties because I know there will be drinking and drugs at the only ones I'm invited to and I'm not into that type of thing. I've told her I don't want to go to any...
  7. [INFP] ESFJ parents; learning to make decisions

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Hi, new here, though I've read through some of the discussions here, and have long known I'm an INFP (borderline T). I'm editing my earlier, much ramblier post to ask: if you grew up with an ESFJ parent, how do you think this might have impacted your ability to trust your own decisions as a...
