How Similar Are You to Your Parent?

In this test, we'd like to help you define your level of similarity to one of your parents. The quiz may also examine your closeness. Since each parent is different, this personality test can be taken TWICE, once for each parent you wish to examine your similarity to.

The Apple Fell Right Under the Tree
Well it seems the apple didn't only land close to the tree, it plumped right down! You and your parent are extremely similar, proof of both genetics and raising in action. You enjoy each other's company, you get along, and when you fight - you fight big because your bond is intimate and you know each other very well. How lucky you are to have (or have had) such a great relationship and similarity to your parent, so you are friends and understand each other fully. It's a gift not everyone has had the luck to experience.
The Apple Didn't Fall Far...
It seems you and your parent are quite similar. You aren't exactly carbon copies of each other, but you have heaps of things in common, you enjoy each other's company most of the time, and your fights are usually small or rare. There is a level to you that your parent may not know or be aware of. They may think they know you completely, but you know better. There's nothing wrong with that, most parents don't know everything about their offspring, and that's an individual choice. People probably comment on how similar you are to your parent, and with time, you are agreeing with them a little more than you used to.
The Apple Rolled a Bit...
While there are some things that you and your parent share, you've never been very similar to each other. In fact, most people wouldn't know you as parent and offspring unless you told them, or only because of some physical resemblance, but not personality. <br><br>You disagree on many things in life, but you've managed to keep it from interfering too much with your relationship. There are things you just have to agree to disagree on, no matter how much you'd like for them to see things your way. You never felt like they really knew you well, at least not after childhood, it was just too hard for them to really understand you.
No Tree in Sight
There is little to zero similarity between the two of you. People who meet you may remark how they would have never guessed you were related. You rarely agree on important things, and your ideals are quite different as well. You spend some time together but it's never too long, because it's just not that much fun for you, especially over time.<br><br> You've either had many big fights in your life where you didn't talk to each other, or you've had almost no fights because you were just never close enough to emotionally invest in one. Of course, while most people get along better when they are similar, it could be you too have had a wonderful relationship, but part of this quiz also examines closeness, and so you may not be as close as you'd like.
