I wanted to take a poll on what the MBTI type is of INTPs mothers. I have a theory about what it will lean to, but I would like to see the results.

Thanks!

Well it's not a big enough sample. But it's kinda what I expected. Most have an ISFJ mother, still need more votes though.

INFJ, with a side order of INFP. What's the theory? And you'd have to compare it to the percentages in the population for it to mean anything, I suppose. Does seem to be more INFJs then that would predict, but, yeah, small sample size.

Mendi the ISFJ since I see your post on our threads, I thought you should see the results of this poll.

My hypothesis is that there is no "theory" from the OP.

My hypothesis on the high number of ISFJ and ESFJ responses? Primarily I bet it's from INTPs who have a love-hate relationship with their mother, have no actual clue what type their mother actually is, and thus respond with ISFJ/ESFJ because they're the type INTPs are "least likely" to get along with on a regular basis.

My mother is ISFJ, I got her tested. Your hypothesis is invalid.
