So what have you gotten from your family genes. Who do you look like, personality traits (not really from genes, but from upbringing) ect.

I look alot like my dad and I got the personality of my mom in a way. (quiet/shy)

I'm a really relaxed guy, and I look a liiiitle bit like my dad. I don't know where that relaxedness came from though.

I look exactly like a split of both of them, and there's a lot of their personalities there too. I wonder if it's cause I was raised by them or cause of genes.

Have there been any studies that show that artistic/musical talent is or can be passed through genetics? I'm just curious.

I dont think so. No of my family members can draw as well as I can (That made me sound like a douche) and I also can enjoy most of the music they listen to but they can't enjoy my metal so WTF.

Some traits can be biological and others come from your upbringing.
According to that article anyway, I'm not sure if it's legit or not, it was the 1st thing on google.

i got 50% of my DNA from my mum, and 50% from my dad

in some ways i look like both, in some ways i look like neither. my personality is different to both of them.
from daylight...
...into darkness
#15
I look like my dad and I am just as stubborn as he is. I am very patient though, got that from my mom.

But I out-witt both of them.
#16
I don't really look like either of my parents. Some features are the same, but I look like....myself?

I also have a completely different personality to both of them.
#18
Wait... personalities are transferred in the human DNA...?

Haha, I think he means that when you're brought up you will gain 'ego', 'Id' and 'super-ego' from your parents, which will make up your personality.
#21
As a guy I am obviously more like my dad :P I hope.


Get the hair and eyes from my mum though (yay) but in total I am more like my dad, partially to do with the two of us being the family musicians.

However I am the tallest in my family for quite a while and I can't see a link as too why.

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

My mum said to me one day 'you know, you'll probably have a large penis, it's genetic'

I do, but it totally takes the fun of it when you know that

Predisposition to mental illness (thanks mum) and a big nose (thanks dad)

Apparently all my Norwegian relatives have this strange midgeted little finger on one hand, which I also have. It's a weird genetic trait, oh well.

I never played that game...

Or maybe our personality's are that of all the dead spirits belonging to the peple than Xenu stacked around volcanoes and killed with hydrogen bombs, like in Scientology.

I used to have the family nose (it's big, and crooked) but I broke it ski-ing. I'm taller than both of them though, and i'm probably most like my mom personality wise.

Edit: Also, a large chance of getting either TB or cancer, which blows.

I'm one out of three academics out of 14 people of my generation in my family, which I get a lot of respect for. I get a lot of my intellect from my Granddad, but get my frankness from my Mum and my bitterness from my Dad which makes me overall a pretty cynical, cold straight forward person. However, my Mum is generally a very happy, charity person which shows up in my (I donate, do charity work, give blood).

My parents are keeping an eye on me with alcohol and manic depression, as it runs in the academics in my family It's nothing to worry about though.

Got dyspraxia from my Dads side, got my curly hair and eyes from my Mum. I got a lot of intellect from my Mum's Dad, so it's all down that side of the family.
#31
I'm an awesome shredder like most of my family.
My mom used to play Arpeggios and sweeps at über speeds, while my dad used to legato everything and play behind his head.
Then my grandfather usually did lots of bends and my grandma played chords pretty well.
So, in the end I can do all.

I look alot like my dad... (I don't see it, but others do.)
Otherwise, I don't remind either of them in any way.

Got my father's eyes, my mother's temper and hair, my personality is very unlike them both.

Oh yeah, I've got my father's intolerance to alcohol too, which is why I don't drink

Is your mum trying to tell you she has a large penis?

I don't know if that was sarcastic or not.

But I like his work.

I got really chubby cheeks and a round face from my mum. Dark hair and eyes from my dad.

Oh dear

Some believe that Jenny and those like her may possess a psychic ability known as 'super-psi', which allows them to reach back in time to access other people's memories. In other words, they are not recalling their own former life.




"Some" is a nice way of saying "retards" apparently.
