    Which Parent Are/Were You Most Similar To?

    Hey everyone!

    I find family dynamics to be fascinating and I love looking at a family and seeing similarities and differences between siblings and with their parents. Personally and what I hear from basically everyone, I think I am very similar to my mom, not only in my looks but also just our personality and temperament. I definitely have some qualities from my dad as well, but I would say I overall my genes favor my moms side.

    How about you? What parent would you say you are most similar to?

    Hey Abby!

    I think I'm most similar to my mom. We look a lot alike but have super similar mannerisms as well!

    Have a good one!

    I'm more similar to my dad. Me and my mom clash.

    Hi Abby,

    I am and always have been more like my dad personality-wise but look a lot like my mom. Growing up, we enjoyed a lot of the same things like music, going fishing, and playing softball together, eventually on the same team when I was a teenager. He taught me to stand up for myself and not take anyone's BS. I've been closer with him most of my life, but he didn't cut me any slack. As an adult, our personalities are very similar as is our humor. He was the disciplinarian where my mother was present but let my dad handle any problems I had and wasn't as involved even though we were in the same house. My sister definitely takes after my mom's personality.

    Hi Abby,

    I think I am a pretty good mix of both of my parents. I have a lot of my dad's traits such as personality but I have my mom's instinct to take care of people. I am a combination in looks as well. I have curly hair like my mom and I got my height from her, but I have my dad's face shape.

    Enjoy your day!

    Good morning, Abby!

    I would have to say that I am most similar to my dad. We are very similar in appearance and mannerisms. I would like to think I am more like my mom in the good qualities, but my wife says I am more similar to my father. She does recognize a couple of traits that I have that are the same as my mother, but they are small in comparison.

    Have a great day!

    Re: Which Parent Are/Were You Most Similar To?

    I would say my mother! If you compare our pictures growing up, there are a TON of similarities. The only difference is that she has blonde hair and blue eyes, and I have brown hair and brown eyes. We have one of those "Hey Google" things, and it was so funny, because one day I wanted to turn it off, and it was only supposed to respond to my Mom, but I wanted to give it a try, so I told it to turn off, and it did! That only works with me, it won't work when my sister tries! But yeah, I've been told a lot growing up how similar I look to my mother, some people saying we're almost like twins!

    Re: Which Parent Are/Were You Most Similar To?

    Good afternoon all,
    Ever since I was little, I've always been told that I look just like my mother. Every time I'd go to see her at work, they'd know who I needed before I even asked. Looking at photos of my mother from when she was my age, people don't see the difference. It looks like a photo of what I look like now. The similarities are insane.
    Looking just like my mother is as far as our similarities go. My attitude and temper are entirely my father's. Everyone likes to tell me that my first language was sarcasm and that I learned it from my father. I also agree with my father more than my mother on a lot of things.

    Re: Which Parent Are/Were You Most Similar To?

    Hi there!

    I find similarities in both parents but I am definitely more like my dad. We are both into sports, especially soccer, and just have a lot of the same interests. I do see a lot of traits in my mom that I see in myself like being a good listener and I do think I get my sweet personality from her!
