I myself I'm a ISTJ and I just found out that the male parental portion I have is INFJ so I'm curious how often do INFJ raise ISTJ's? Also how are relationship between the two as child and parent?

It's reversed for me; dad is istj, I am infj.

As far as our relationship went, I wanted his approval on everything I did, because I seen him as some kind of hero. He told me what I did wrong in everything, but also what I did right. We're quiet, too, but it's not a bad quiet.

same. reversed. My mum's an ISTJ, I'm an INFJ.
same with @Bit, she notices everything I do wrong.. but I find it's sometimes very overbearing. Things I do right, she sees but doesn't boast me up. I don't find it as a motivation like he does. It's self-deprecating, but perhaps I need that.. you know? keep my two feet on the ground. Be consistently humble. I find it a difficult relationship, the two as a dual.. I mean, to start off, our functions are completely different ~[Si, Te, Fi, Ne] vs. [Ni, Fe, Ti, Se]. Communication is impaired.. so there's little room for understanding, or it's not particularly easy. But hey, I reckon this is good for the long run.. prepares you for what's out there. In socionics terms, it's called relations of super-ego. It's about impressing each other more or less.

@Deejaz
My dad only started telling me what I did right when I didn't live with him anymore. I can definitely connect with everything you've said.
