Unfortunately I am not as accomplished as either my father or my mother. I am very introverted compared to them, they were both very outgoing people, active in life. Both died when I was young, though.
>>16771304 When it comes to personality I am not much like my father, I am a lot more talkative and outgoing than he probably ever was. I do look quite a bit like my father in his youth and share some of his sense of humor.
I'd say it all comes down to who do you spend your childhood with, a lot of boys tend to spend more time with their mothers than their fathers so it's unavoidable that she'll leave a lasting effect on your personality. Being the oldest/youngest child and having sisters and/or brothers will shape you up a lot as well.
Man here: I'm more like my mother than father in most aspects, I suspect in large part because I was much closer to her growing up. We're a result of nature and nurture, which makes most people similar to their parents. But we all get to grow up and define our own lives. In many critical ways I'm not like either of my parents, which is part of why I have things like degrees and money and successful romantic relationships.
Dude here. I look a lot like my dad, specially when I wear glasses - I've had people who only knew him instantly identify me.
We have wildly different personalities in most respects, althought we share a few traits: He's highly assertive, unhealthly meticulous and proud owner of one of the worst tempers I've ever seen - I'm collected, easy going and usually have trouble expressing myself objectively.
I'd say there's the good and the bad. On the up side, I mostly had an easier time at school\work because a 6 or missing homework were grounds for family reunion. On the bad side, I basically grow up trying not to be an annoyance, which, among other things, made me into a bland shut-in for good chunk of my life.
Oldest of three brothers - the other two look nothing like him and they tend to be a lot more extroverted, like mom. They spent a lot less time with him, too.
Yeah on my way to becoming a motherfucken p.i.m.p just like my father which is good in my opinion, annoying stupid people like to tell me differently though im only disappointed ill only ever be half the legend that he is
I think I'm a bit like my mother in the way that I'm irrational - but people think I'm more like my father, I have the same tastes and relatively the same hobbies as him, and we both emotionally shut down and act out like sperglords when shit goes down.
I am not like my father for most aspects. I respect him because he went through some tough shit (my mother dying from cancer 1000 km away from where we lived, spending 6 months in war in Macedonia and Afghanistan) but I really feel we are not similar.
I've learned two things from him though: never borrow money and criticize constructively. For the rest, I do not like his way of acting... he is passive-aggressive (just like my older brother, who last time told me "You are pissing me off" to reply to this comment), introvert as fuck (once he introduced me to 2 female friends of his and told me being quiet around people was an okay thing. yes, for real), hates being on his own and is proud of his youth, which consisted in being in the army and attending borderline fascist political rallies in Italy.
My youth is vastly difference: I have dreadlocks, smoke weed daily, travel a lot solo, end up in fucked up situations (I'm the first in my family to go to Africa), study Politics in University with most of my classmates being hardcore commies.
I may sound a bad person but I really feel I grew up on my own and am part of a different family. Whenever I'm around my brothers or family (even my stepmother) my mood instantly drops and I become stressed and depressed. In my childhood I had one very close friend, and he still is one of the closest people to me personality-wise.
>female I grew not only to look like my mother, but I've noticed my hobbies/habits are very similar to hers, as well. It's little things, over time. I love my mother, she's a really sweet, kind woman and everyone really enjoys her company, so I'm looking forward to it. She and my step father raised me and I have such a similar personality, though, that you'd swear I was his. My biological father and I share 'little' traits (same handwriting, same preference for vanilla over chocolate, etc), again, but he had nothing to do with my upbringing or life and still does not.
Nothing like my dad in many ways, like our interests and way of doing things, but our personality and sense of humour are perfectly matched. I do things more like my mum, and I also match her sense of humour and personality but in different ways.
Most people don't turn out to be like their parents, but a better version of them both (for the most cases)
I look a lot like my mom. But personality wise all i got from her is my crippling insecurity. And i'm very happy i didn't get more of her traits. Althought, it might happen that i discover some over time. Maybe the lack of communication skills or the "people pleaser syndrom". But thise are all just symptoms of insecurity and low selfesteem. In which both my parents have had their fair share in forming. I always thought i had NOTHING from my dad. Turns out his beliefs are deeper inprinted than i thought. The negativ selftalk is definitely something i got from him. Working on damage controle atm. Good traits i got from them: being able to get along with little to no money. Love the outdoors. Eating healthy. Damn. That's it. Even after thinking about it long and hard.
I resent my dad heavily for how he conducted most of my upbringing, but I'm still like him in many ways. Not doubting he's had to put up with some shit, but he could have coped with it all a hell of a lot better.
I think in terms of attitude toward life and just overall attitude, I'm like him (which is not a good thing). I like to think I've got some of my mum in there even though I was 10 when she died. I think all I got was her hypersensitivity and her affectionate nature. Oh well!
