    My Dad

    I have the same temper as him. I get my love and abilty for hamming it up in front of a crowd from him. sometimes I look like him but mostly I look like my mom. I have my dad's eyes. I get my strong will from my mom and my stuborness from my dad.

    Overall Not a Lot...

    Not a whole lot really.  The only way in which I am like my mother is an appreciation for proper manners and such. My Dad probably more.  Can't really put my finger on it but have had many tell me that I'm just like him.

    Biological Or Adopted?

    Can you inherit traits simply because you've been around them long enough? Can you absorb the best and the worst of their traits as you learn from them? Or are they entirely genetic?  Some people could have gotten genetic traits from a murderer, but they haven't.  It...

    Danny and Laura [those Are My Parents]

    i get my ability to be layed back and take everything in stride from my father. my mother tends to be more moody and can take everything, and i mean everything, overly personal. i did get my mothers manners and good sense of style. she may not always be in a great mood, but she...

    God, Save Me

    My mom & I have the exact same laugh. It's so bad that I was laughing in the front of my gma's house & my dad who was in the back of the house wondered, "What the hell is she is doing here." (This is how he told it to me later.) It gets worse if I'm around her a...

    One From Each.

    I don't generally think I'm like my parents that much, but I am in two major ways. My Father is the most passive man I have ever met, I have never seen him get angry, swear or get violent. He's always polite and takes crap from everyone but never gets upset or retaliates. I've...

    Yin and Yang

    My mum is very creative though she doesn't ues her creativity as best as she can and my dad has the mathamatics and logical mind happening, I like to think I got the best of both of them. There are traits that my mum has that I hope I never inherit.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Yeah....

    I, sadly, share the same sense of humour with my Dad, and love for chocolate. I'm just that bit more addicted. WHat's better is he has a dodgy liver so he can't eat much of it without feeling ill. My mum is, like me, very un-competitive and laid-back. I can't get distressed...

    well, physically i look like my mother, and our voices are very very similar.  (like, dad can't tell us apart on the phone!!)  from mom also came an almost intractable stubbornness.  i suppose i shouldn't be surprised that i also inherited a tendency to migraine...

    I Hope More From My Mom Than My Dad...

    Everyone says my mom and I have the same smile and the same hair. I also share her temper, her "Charlie Brown" luck, and we both act the same when we're really passionate about something. I also think I got her loud mouth :-X. Sometimes I share her sheer craziness and...

    So..What Qualities Do You Share?

    Well I apparently look a lot like my father but I get my bitchiness and sense of humour from my mum. So even though I look like my father I tend to say that I am more like my mother. We like a lot of the same things and we are closer. Who do you take after?
