Nara family

/shrug. Was it called family more than clan, because it seems very inconsistent. /shrug--TheUltimate3 (talk) 22:32, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, they are called a family more than they are called a clan. I'm still trying to figure out the reason for the inconsistency. Maybe they were a clan in days past, or perhaps the Nara family is only a part of the clan. I'll try to find more information. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 22:42, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
Now im confused. Did you find that clan was used more or is this for consitency?--TheUltimate3 (talk) 23:28, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
When I first changed clan to family, I was convinced that the Yamanaka and Inuzuka were also families. However, after doing some research, I found they are called clans, although the Inuzuka are called both.
So I decided that any distinction between the two words is really arbitrary and for consitencies sake, ew should use the more common clan. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 23:41, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Shikamaru's personality=/=Naramen's personality

"Despite being considered geniuses, the men from this family are prone to being lazy and hard to motivate, but once the situation calls for it, they are very determined and loyal. Ironically, they tend to be attracted to stern, overbearing women. However, there appear to be other factors as well. The Nara men seem to hold women in high esteem, and as a result, willingly defer to their female partners. Shikaku Nara tells his son "Without women, men can't be born. Without women, men go to ruin. Even the hardest of women will show a sweet side to the man she loves and respects"."

When it says "they" you do know this stuff is only known to apply to Shikamaru and for some of it Shikaku right?

Asuma was the ONLY one that knew Shikamaru was a genius prior to the Chuunin Exams and he only found out because he decided to do an IQ test on a hunch. Before that the son of the Jounin Commander was not thought to amount to anything. Considering the Sarutobi, Nara, Akimichi and Yamanaka clans have been doing this dance for sixteen generations, you'd think something like this would at some point be somewhat known to Asuma. Similiarly, we have no reason to believe Shikaku's way of describing his relationship with his wife is in any way stereotypical of the Nara clan.

So please, can we wait until we have more then one or two examples for something before we start saying "this is something the clanmen are known for." Baykura (talk) 01:13, October 26, 2011 (UTC)
