What traits, qualities, mannerisms, interest, appearance do you get from each one of your parents? I'll start:
mom: financial budgeting
dad: interest in spiritual things
Mom: calm in nearly any situation, general happy temperament, my every now and then temper
Dad: height (although i'm much taller than my dad -.o), my general hatred of anything academic, logical thinking
Everything else good and bad seems to just be me lol.
I'm pretty dissimilar from them on the surface, or if you don't really know me well enough. I could write a lot about this, but just in general ...
My interest in sports comes from my dad. He was more of a nerdy type of guy (not with things like comic books or video games), with an athletic build. He was just more interested in the academics, but was a sports nut. Both of my parents are above average height for their gender, and I'm pretty tall myself.
Financially, it's a mix. I'm not much of a spender, and I save a lot. I budget really well though, and I think the saving comes more from my dad. Social skills are definitely more related to mom, if I had to relate them. As far as friends though, I have an amazing group of individuals I consider friends, but a more tightly knit circle within that, and I think that's more reminiscent of my dad. There's really only four guys he usually always hangs out with, and I learned early on that having a lot of friends would be beneficial in aspects like connections and if we'd ever cross paths in the future for something important (job related), but I only really trust that circle of friends with things no one else knows about me. Even with them, I don't tell them everything, and like time to myself just for solace (I'm an ambivert, and I probably got the qualities of an extrovert from my mom, and introvert from my dad).
Well, there are some more things, but overall I learned about the similarities when I matured. If you asked me this when I was in the ninth grade, I would have probably said nothing was alike.
Why are Pooty's random questions so much more interesting than everyone else's random questions?
Yes, I certainly follow in their footsteps in various ways. Money management, studiousness, trying to be helpful and courteous to people, ambitious, probably a lack of social skills! And all of the same from my grandmother, but even moreso, as well.
