    Which one of your parents are you most like?

    That's a simple question that's not so simple to answer.

    I'm like both, in different ways.

    Like my mother with cleanliness, cooking, worrying.
    Like my father with cautiousness, opinionated, wordy.

    Thankfully I'm more like my father.

    I don't know my father so I guess I have to say neither, because IMO I'm NOTHING like my Mother.

    Re: Which one of your parents are you most like?

    Great question.

    I have to say I'm a little like my dad in that I like to tell it like it is and people often come to me for advice. He's also an avid volunteer, and so am I.

    But that's it for similarities.

    My mom? I'm still not sure on that one. I don't think we're much alike at all, except we both really like bread.

    Personality-wise, I'm not like either of my parents. I appear to have been created in a vaccuum, thank goodness.

    And as a parent, I run circles around both of them, and they frequently acknowledge that.

    Same here and both of mine also let me know that often.


    I have a few traits from both I guess, but I don't see myself like either them.

    I see so much of myself in both it's impossible to say one or the other.

    Re: Which one of your parents are you most like?

    Both.

    I have my fathers temper. And the ability to see both sides of a story, that was a mantra of his "There's always 2 sides to a story". I also got my love of airplanes and rockets from him. And some of his sense of humor.

    But I think I have more of my moms sense of humor than dads. And I have her openmindedness on things. My tidiness is a combo of hers, and just being a Virgo

    Re: Which one of your parents are you most like?

    I have to add that though I'm glad I'm not really like either of my parents, I do wish I had their organizational skills. They are two of the most organized people I know! And they divorced long ago, so it's not like one of them is organized and lives with the other's systems. No, they are both so on it, it's amazing.

    My sister got the organizational gene from them. Her closets and drawers are immaculate.

    Not I. I see every drawer as a junk drawer. And every closet as a place to throw all the crap I don't want you to see.

    Re: Which one of your parents are you most like?

    I am so much more like my Mom. My Mom and I are both huge Football fans. My dad is into extreme sports like sky diving and bungee jumping. My mom and I both love reading true crime books such as Helter Skelter and the Night Stalker. My dad does not read at all. My Mom and I also listen to the same style of music.

    Re: Which one of your parents are you most like?

    Thankfully I'm more like mom. I definitely have her nutty personality. When people meet her, they look at me and say, "So that's who you get it from!"

    I also get my expensive taste from her and I guess my looks (she looks younger than her current 61 and I look younger than my current 34).

    Re: Which one of your parents are you most like?

    I don't see much of myself in either.

    I remember in the early 90's, visiting my extended family in California - uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. - and I felt a very strong bond with them. It was very odd, most of extended family I'd not seen since I was a kid - but I really am much more like them than my parents or siblings. (in frugality, in sarcasm/humor, etc.)

    I am my mom. I don't know my biological father, but I was a lot like my step dad.
