I feel like I'm the total opposite.

They're extremely intelligent and hard-working High Achieving Type A personalities... I'm a lazy bum.
They're very into sciences (well, medicine is their job!) but I'm more artsy.

They're not exactly party animals. I go out a bit too much.

I feel like I should be a lot better than I am, being their child.

I'm too similar, surely 17 is too young an age to start turning into your mother?

Not really, no, but my parents are chalk and cheese. They're both the extremes - my mum's crazy, and my dad's incredibly dull.

Hopefully not, I notice what they do that annoys me and worry if I'm like it and annoy others.

I'm nothing like my Mum, no.
She stresses about every tiny little thing, whereas I'm very laid back and don't stress at all.
She's very conservative - not a fan of anything new, slightly homophobic, doesn't accept any kind of modern culture; whereas I love technology, and I'm not at all homophobic, and I recently argued with her about my brother (he's an emo) because she had a go at him for wearing eyeliner, and I mentioned that I thought it suited him.
She's also very wary of other people; she doesn't like doing things for others - I'm the other way around, I live my life to help others.
However, I look like her quite a bit, and have a very similar voice (albeit it with a bit of a lisp which she doesn't have).

My Stepdad I'm nothing like, but we just won't go into that.

From what I can work out, my personality/opinions are most similar to my real Dads, but I only met him in November 2007 so that's not really long enough to judge. I also look a bit like him - around 50% him and 50% my Mum.

Probably more so than I'd like to think.

I pray i'm not. My dad's a little short sighted personality wise and my mum is narrow minded pretending to be somebody with a broad view of the world

Quite similar.

They're extremely intelligent and hard-working (especially my mum). I'm not going to suck my own lollipop but I'm relatively intelligent..I think.

My Daddy is a pimp and so am I. :cool:

My mother: I'm not like her at all.

My dad: We have a similar sense of humour, and like the same sports. And maths was his best subject at school.

My dad left school at 15, my mum at 17. They're not really high achievers. I look nothing like either of them.

If your talking along the lines of being clinically depressed....then yes. I also have inherited some of my mums intelligence according to my dad.

I'm like neither, though I've been told I resemble my Mum.

Well, you'd have to be pretty intelligent to get into LSP. They've got insanely high grade requirements, I've heard.

In some ways yes, I'm a lot like my mother and I have my dad's temper.

But in a lot of ways I'm not, which I am VERY VERY thankful for

Very different to my mother, she is very nervous and uptight. But then my Dad is extremely social - I am not :s: I think I'm more like my dad than my mum though (I am nothing like her).

My dad's artistic and an alcoholic.
I'm rubbish at art and don't drink.

My mum's a nurse in a mother and baby unit and a psychiatric hospital.

I can't stand people, let alone helping them.

So no, totally different ;D

I'm like both of my parents, in several ways. I have similar interests to my dad, and we have the same sense of humour etc, and I like to think I have his motivation and work ethic-get everything done ASAP and then have free time later on. It's a trait I respect and would like to have, but I generally don't-like my mum, which is worrying, in a way.

I generally get on with my dad better than my mum, but hey. I can get on with my mum quite well at times, but less often than with my dad. Ah well...I love both of them (despite mum really annoying me quite often).

Im Very similar to my dad, We both walk fast, both can be short tempered and loud and love to make people laugh (even if his jokes are appaling!) However I follow my mum in that Im shy around people I dont know, and I do enjoy staying in once in a while! Academic wise im different from my parents, but thats mostly opportunity I think than mentality.
