Well, I'm paternal, that's totally a trait, right? Anyway, it's pretty simple how that helps me. It means I will love my little brother unconditionally and care for him to the best of my abilities whereas a less paternal sibling may have chewed his face off by now.
Seriously, I love the little ball of fluff but, sometimes he can be... Overwhelming.
Is there a trait that you think inhibits you? How does it?
