    My dad. More open-minded, mild-mannered, and intellectual than my mom, and less confident, less passionate, and less responsible about day-to-day details. Although I see my mom in my childrearing practices a lot!

    Please God NOOOOOOOO

    You have me running now because it is the one thing I pray for each and every day … NOT to be like them!

  3. I’ve gotta say I’m about evenly split. Now that I’m a big girl, I can see that they are both really neat people with a lot of good qualities, and while I have not developed quite up to their level yet, I am definitely trying to emulate both of them in a few different ways.

    I’ve never met my dad, so I can’t make a real comparison. My mom and I are opposites on so much (politics, likes/dislikes, even orientation), but we’re both stubborn and workaholics. Every once in a while, I catch myself channeling my mother, but that’s not a good thing. I’m just glad I didn’t inherit her ability to choose awful life partners!

    For me, the family member I’m like the most is my grandfather, who was my father-figure. He taught me my love of learning, my respect for the sea, how to be a good citizen. We’re so alike in temperment, my mother called me Tom the Third (my uncle is Tom the Second). Funny thing, my first twin, Tom the ‘Fourth’ is just like him too, spitting image and everything. I even have a tattoo in honor of my grandfather.

    I’ve mentioned this before, but my older daughter is practically a carbon copy of me other than her physical looks. We are not related biologically, and she came to me at age 1, complete with all these traits. This weirds me out a little.

    I tend to act more like my mom but share my dads views, thoughts, and feelings more than I do my moms.. My dad and I see eye to eye.. My mom and I are just now to the point in our lives where we actually get along with each other and do more than tolerate each other

  8. thegoddessanna says:

    SKL – My daughter is not biologically my husband’s, and she’s my evil clone, but when she was a baby, we would get tons of comments about how much she looked and acted like Tim. I used to get freaked out; Tim ate it up. There are still moments when I would swear they were related (although there is no possibility)! I take it as our family was meant to be like this.

    It’s funny how things work out in the end.

    What a thought provoking question…. I think my parents’ traits were pretty evenly distributed with me. Maybe slightly more like my dad though.

    I’m not sure about my Dad, he was never around. I know I got his love of spicy foods and Mustangs though. I’ve been told many times by my loving husband, “you sounded just like your Mom!” I’m a clean person b/c she’s a neat freak worse than me.

  11. Just a Mom says:

    Definitely like my mom. My brother is just like my father. People used to ask my mom where she kept the xerox machine!

  12. Jane says:

    My personality is more like my dad. I’m really like him in most ways. We think alike and like the same things. I look like my mom though and her mom. So, I’m like them both which I think is great.

  13. Sue says:

    I don’t even want to think of this question!

  14. kweenmama says:

    In personality I am like my mom. In physical appearance I look like my grandma (my dad’s mom.)
