Mom or Dad....which are you more like? - Page 2

As far as looks go I'm quite a mix. I have my mom's shape eyes, but the blue color of them comes from my dad. My hair did the same thing as my dads - blonde as a little girl and dark brown once I got older- but the thick waviness comes from my mom's side (more specifically my grandfather). I have high cheekbones which comes probably mostly from my mom and our Cherokee heritage, but also from my dad's mother. My mom tells me my smile is a replica of her mother's (it's rather large, which I don't always like lol). I'm fairly tall (5'8") and that is a mix in my family (my brother got the short genes - he's one inch taller than me and nearly 30).

Basically, people say "Wow you and your brother look exactly alike." But I never really hear it about my parents.

neither really. I have my own distinct personality and a way of dealing with life. I think i'm most like my grandmother on my father's side, actually

To give you a perspective, I'm a LEO, my mom's PIECES and my father is a TAURUS - a total mad house!

Too bad about your father - I can understand where you're coming from.
And yes, genetics are that powerful. Let's just say my family background is like the Hemingways, and that is proof enough that certain types of personalities do run in families.

My grandparents and the rest of my mom's side of the family say that I am just like my Great-Uncle Sam (My grandpa's brother). He passed away three months before I was born, and I know from stories that he was so happy my mom was pregnant, and couldn't wait to see me. They've always told me that he's my guardian angel, and for all that's happened, I really like to think he is.

Wow, you've got a whole mix of elements there! I can only imagine!

My dad was a Scorpio and I have Aries rising - so our house was a battlefield when I was in my teens!

My dad, definately. I am such a daddys girl. I am just as stubborn, opinionated and always want to be right. (I am working on all these traits ). When I get mad at my dad it is usually because he is exhibiting the same above traits that I have myself. On the other hand I have his love of family, animals and the desire to help mankind. He has done so much good and still desires to do more. I admire him so much. I love my mom too but I am so much more like my dad.

Mom's a Leo and Horse.... I'm a Tauras and a Rat.... In both astrological circles, we don't get along!

(What was really funny is that our last cat was a Taurus and a Rat as well.... Oh what bad karma....)

Wow Tricia - sounds like we have similar dads! People tell me I'm like my dad.... I just hope that I'm as gentle a soul as he is

My bf is SO like his dad it's untrue! They even have the same (dry) sense of humour

My daddy.

I look just like he did as a kid. We share a love of animals, science, and a assortment of other things. We get along so great. Sometimes it feels like he's more of a best friend then a dad.

I am more like my mother~compassionate, giving and understanding.

I have some of my dad's traits which are the attitude and stubborness, but my father is also very loving
post #45 of 52
Mentally, I'm more like my mom. Physically, I'm more like my dad. I've been told I look just like his mom.
post #46 of 52
while i do have a few of my fathers traits, i'm very much like my mother...and quite proud of that too as my mother is a wonderful person, all my bad qualities i get from my father unfortunately...but even in appearance i'm like my mom, i see myself looking more and more like her everyday

The funny thing is that my sister is identical to my Dad in personality and looks!
OMG That's exactly how it is with me! I'm a clone of my Mom and we get along great, like best friends. I'm nothing like my dad looks wise or personality wise but my sister and one of my brothers got all of his traits.
post #48 of 52
Hmmm............I think I have some traits of both mom and dad, although I'm very different in ways than both of them. But we love each other dearly. I guess I look more like my dad, same color hair and eyes.
post #49 of 52
I've actually got some of both of them, but I'm most like my mother.
post #50 of 52

Same here...but being like Dad can make for very interesting times, since we both are stubborn!

What about you??
See... you guys are lucky in having to really think about that question. I'm more like a carbon-copy of my mother. We look the same, sound the same - we even say the same things, at the same time with the same tone of voice. We have very similar personality traits, in fact... if you listen to us, the only person to be able to tell us apart is my mum's brother! Even her own husband could never do it!! There have been a couple of times when my better half has phoned and mum has answered the call - to be greeted with something meant for my ears only!!

It's the Jansson gene - the Jansson women don't reproduce... we clone.
