I’m posting my results because they fit me so well.
I already knew I was INTP. But this description of what it means to my mothering style tickles me.
Your type is: intp �The �Love of Learning� Mother
�I keep the encyclopedia in the kitchen so we can look up things together while we eat.�
* Intellectually curious and patient, the INTP mother relishes those times with a child when they are learning something interesting together. Whether they�re at the zoo or computer terminal, she sparks to answering his or her �whys� with in-depth responses or new knowledge.
* The INTP mother is also objective and introspective. She listens to and discusses children�s ideas and questions as she would those of a peer, fostering self-esteem and confidence. Open and non-directive, she allows children the freedom to do for themselves and quietly encourages them to believe they can do it.
* Independence, autonomy, intellectual development, and self-reliance are probably the INTP�s highest priorities for her children. An avid reader, she naturally imparts an appreciation and love of reading as well.
* Drawn to all types of learning, the INTP may also value her mothering experience for all the new insights about life it provides her.
This does look vaguely familiar, though. I may have posted it before. Well, if so it was long ago and anyway the shoe still fits! It’s good to remind myself of my strengths as a mother on those days when I despair at how bad I am about all that housekeeping stuff.
