Definitely NTJ! This reminds me so much of my father and what he would do. When I was in 4th grade I decided I wanted to play the drums. My mother was very supportive, going as far as to get me set up with lessons so I could start learning before starting band in 5th grade. My father? "Girls don't play drums." Admittedly, I used spite to become good enough that my freshman year of high school, there was an article in the local newspaper about me! By then my parents were divorced and I made sure to point out in the interview they did what my father said and how my mother was the one that supported me the most. Why? Because I knew my father would try to take credit when he never paid for a lesson! I wanted to nip it in the bud.
My father is no longer part of my life and I'm now part of a high level ensemble where a good portion of the musicians are professionals. My mom is super supportive and even travels to come see me. But at the end of the day, it was my effort that got me to where I am! I worked hard to develop my skill. Just like YOU worked hard to get where you are at with your art.
