Do Tell: What Are Your Similar Traits?



I am a perfect mix of my mother and father, but more often than not, people tell me I am my mother's daughter! It is no big surprise that every parent passes down their mannerisms and unique characteristics to their children, but it can be spooky to see some mother/daughter duos that literally mirror each other.

In the spirit of Mother's Day, ladies, do tell, what characteristics or personality traits do you share with your mother?

My emotional dependence on people, my lack of emotion and compassion, my lack of ability to love, lying extremely well, spending money I don't have. thanks mom.

A lot of people think I look just like my mom, but she says I look 90% like my dad and act like her brother. Strange huh? However, I do have the need to always please people like her.

i am very much an equal mix of both of my parents. from my mom, i get my zany, quirky side...and from my dad i get my work ethic and my occasional pessimism. i also look like a mixture of both of them...unlike my brothers who look like either one or the other.

i don't look anything like my mother. it's actually quite funny. we are so different that when i was little and she had to bring me to the doctor the nurses would joke: "where was the mommy when this baby was born?" i don't look much like my dad either... but i'm the exact copy of my great-grandmother. it's freaky. we have a photgraph of her in her twenties which was taken in the nineteen twenties. and it's me. it's really scary! hehe. happy mother's day everyone!

well...i look very much like my mother. we are both very strong-willed and independent. we can also be very unreasonable when we're upset. i think we fight a lot because we are so much alike. i am definitely my mother's daughter.

I have my mother's wrists, and that's pretty much it. She's a great mom though!

My mother is an incredibly tough act to follow. She was smart, strong, loving, open minded, tolerant and more. I always favored my father physically and personality wise until the last few years. Now I hear that I'm more and more like my mother in looks and personality. No greater compliment could ever be paid to me.

i have my mom's stubborness, independence and high standards for knowing what i want! of course, that's cause for a lot of clashes with us but we're very close so it's all good. oh and it's nice to see that she's aging very well because it bodes well for me in the future! she's in her late 50's and looks 15 years younger!

I totally look exactly like my mom - it's so weird. Pictures of her at my age make us look like twins! And just like my mom, I love to laugh & LOVE kids. I also have her sweet tooth. Happy Mom's Day everyone!

I look exactly like this one photo I found of my mother, only whatever she was wearing is something I'd never be caught dead in. For some reason, the only thing that comes to mind is her near constant singing of random little snipets of songs she's accuired over the years. I do that too. ;)

One bad thing I got is her worrying! A good thing is her feelings on the importance family. When my family has a dinner or get together it is usually planned by either her or myself.

I am a mirror image of mother when she was my age (except my hair is darker and I have my father' curls). I also have her strong sense of self and independence!

I got my mom's nose, her temper and stubborness (haha) her sensitivity, and her ability to sing (which isn't well haha) I got my dad's sense of humor. _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?
