Ribbit, How does your B husband and AB daughter get along and how do your other B and A children get along?  I have many B's in my family and two AB's. I just blood typed my cousin with the Eldon card from NAP. We typed him as B+ and I did the Genotype measurements on him.  He's a Gatherer with many of the tell-tale characteristics. I seem to be surrounded by many B's! Their B balance just highlights my AB extremes. It takes a lot of patience and perseverance to understand.

This is just my family--I have no idea if it's typical.

Not counting the baby (because everybody loves her--she doesn't steal toys or knock down masterpiece block castles...yet), when I remove one party--it doesn't matter which one--it's quieter.  Every so often the AB will say, "Mama, you just don't understand.  I'm going to ask Daddy."  But it's just as often that she will say, "Daddy, you don't understand.  I'll go ask Mom."  It's a learning process.

DH and the AB go back and forth.  Some days are good, others aren't.  Most of it has to do with DH's moods.  I can read them more easily than the children can and will try to get them involved in doing something if I know he needs to eat or whatever before interaction happens.  Again, it's a learning process.

And when I'm not feeling well?  DH steps in and gets them busy AWAY from me while I enjoy sipping a cup of hot coffee and flip through a few pages of Organic Gardening and plot (pun intended) what I will plant this spring.

As a child, I was often the mediator in my family. If my B mom or B brother fought with my AB dad or each other, I'd try to make them get along.  I can see all points of view in an argument and sometimes that doesn't help with my own decision making.

do the MBTI test or others like the  enneagram; be aware that you are using patterns to
deal with your outer world;.... this is very important in not getting confused with certain patterns we also do share... so far here I prefer to work with the enneagram coz it shows muchmore also our profiles by our *wings* and this can be very heavy if our *wings* are tougher influencing then our choosen psychogram.... .....
so Shelly have an eye onto your NT'ness... we lack a bit the F-side.... so far we have to develop some more skills here as well.. ...and the earlier...the better ...

Often descision making is done by belly feelings and often those are sooo right... but when we interact with our scepticisme and T-side... we get lost,...dearest Sharon...

Thanks, Amazone...I'll take those tests and see what insights I might find. I'm glad to have many great friends and helpful people who understand on these forums.

I came back yesterday after a month away and was really wow'ed by the searing honesty and focus. So glad you AB's are interested in having an enclave as we B's do... Your input is sorely needed and ... lovingly welcome.

Oh, also: Where are the AB Nomads?

When I have my leg space on the "andric" setting, I'm a Nomad.  If it's neutral, I'm an "Explorer"  I'm a teacher/explorer/nomad.  According to the book, I'm a teacher. According to swami I'm somewhere close to a explorer/nomad.  Much of inputting into swami I'm a nomad.  So maybe I am one.  I don't know.  I don't really care which "type" I am any longer.  It's annoying to try and figure it out.  I'm an AB with genetic tendencies toward all three of them.  Hehehehehe.  So, to answer your question.  I'm partly Nomad probably.  Hehehehehehehehee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can relate. As a B, I've always felt a phenomenal affinity with Nomadism. I haven't done Swami, but I'm quite clearly GT-6. I, too, sense that the B's are a family/clan, and some of us are Reactive, some Thrifty, and some Tolerant... Something like that.

Yeah, I think explorer is probably the closest.  But I'm not fretting about it any longer.  But I think I figured my space to be neutral last night, and that puts me as an explorer.  Which I've been eating more meat lately to see what it does.  I take lypo gold to help it go down and it seems to be working.  Needing less other supplements.

I'm getting die off symptoms with much less probiotics and things than before.  My body is in killing mode and it doesn't even need a whole lot of help to be doing it.  I'm like skipping supplements at times to slow down the process.

Where are AB's on the Myers-Briggs and/or Keirsey and Enneagram scales? These probably don't correlate, but I'm just making conversation

ABN frère...don't worry..... I think a teacher has more relations to his/her A-side and the nomade is more prone for the B-side...so far explorer's are the most weird-ones... .....perhaps shouldn't we be here .....

In terms of AB-possible Genotypes:

Warrior     ENTP  Ne Ti
Nomad     ESFP   Se Fi
Explorer   INFP   Fi Ne
Teacher    ISFJ    Si Fe

The first two functions are noted after the MB type.  The Genotypes are in order of ABness as far as I could guess.  Overall, you get emphases of Sensing over iNtution, and Feeling over Thinking.  The judicial function (F/T) is introverted and the interpretive function is extroverted.  Here Teacher is mainly being included for completeness as some AB's might have Teacher as a Second or Third Principle Component.

and then remember that we justamente do the opposite of our endings.... as being introverts; sorry I don't think that explorers are the infp's... often isfp/j is confonded with infp/j's...

warriors as ENTP/J's yep here I can see les choses ....the nomads I saw here are almost ESFP/J's or isfp/j's and the teachies I'll found em merely onto the infp-side,
ENFP/J's almost hunters....ooh Isa dont' commit the same error in classifying...sorry folks I apologize..... .... I remember...Mflowerli is an ENFP and she's a warrior ....tsk..tsk....but ..but...but.... it might be that we will score something different when we come along the integrative way of the enneagram...so far no more no less it might be that we are all hippeling around in our transitory issues ........I think the hardest things to hear when you meet an old friend not havin seen over years and he/she claims: hey you didn't change at all since.... .......

My mother is an AB and I'm still waiting for a sister of mine to use the blood typing test she got in the mail. They are both crazy! I mean that in a loving way. They are sensitive, emotional, intuitive (which I am too maybe it's an A/AB trait- we make good psychics lol), somewhat lazy, dreamer type. I'm not saying all AB's are like this... but this is the things in common my mom and sister have. I would be so surprised if my sister wasn't an AB.

They both feel misunderstood by the world, an outcast, not really close friends with anyone other than their own minds. Wow, sounds like I'm picking on them. That's not what I am meaning at all though. They are both pack rats and hate to clean.

Good qualities? Very creative. Love arts and music.  


O positive baby boy.
