I get along well with most of my family, but there's a certain barrier there- we're not particularly close. I'm a 5w4 INTP. My mom and I chatter on the phone fairly often (She's an INTJ 1w2), but we never actually touch on personal matters. My brother is an INTJ 9w1, and whenever we get on the phone, he never has much of anything to say to me. I try to avoid talking to my ISTJ 6w5 father because I can't relate to him. I also have a very old grandfather who is an INTP 5w4 like me, but two fives together creates a certain sense of coldness, even though we both care for each other.
It can be frustrating to be a five because I have a desire to connect to other people but just can't seem to.
> I am curious as to people's relationship to their parents. Anyone know of any info correlating closeness with parents to type at all? Or what's your personal experience?
> I am a male 5w4 and am not really close to either of my parents. I do speak with my father by telephone every week or two, but mostly just listen to him talk (he's 8w7, so it's easy!). I give him very little information about what's going on in my life, unless it's something that has already taken place.
