While I do occasionally hear my mother speaking through my mouth, thank G-d I'm not actually turning into her. Yet.

a little perhaps, but not enough to say 'yes'.

I am turning into an adult with many of the same concerns my parents had, similarities of personality to both of them, and behavior templates established by watching how they handled situations. But I wouldn't say that I am becoming either of them, or even an amalgam of the two.

Don't even go there!

I sure as hell hope not!

I think "amalgam" deserves the green globule.

I have attributes of both, but I have chosen a somewhat different path, and in some ways I have surpassed my parents.

Not yet, but I'm sure I will someday.

more my mom than my dad, and i am happier about it than i thought i would be when i was younger.

I've noticed it happening a lot in little things - when I sneeze it sounds like my dad, when someone asks a general question when we're together we'll often answer the same thing at the same time - that kind of thing. It doesn't worry me at all, I just find it interesting.

"Other"--I know that there are some things about me that I picked up from my parents, but I am consciously choosing those behaviors that I adopt.

I have things in common with each of my parents, but I wouldn't say I am turning into them. I have a similar sense of duty and work-related-martyrdom to my Dad, but I don't have the clashing personal responsibilities (partner, children) that he had so there's not really any conflict/guilt there for me. I am naturally quiet, introverted and bookish like my Mum, but she wasn't forced to step outside of that like I have been, so I've grown beyond that outwardly, even if inwardly I am much the same.

I am a lot like both of them in many ways.
