For those of you who are unfamiliar with the word "dere", it means caring or affectionate. It's used to describe many character archetypes in anime (most notably romcoms). To break it down:

Tsundere: Aggressive on the outside but caring inside.

Kuudere: Cold and stoic on the outside but caring inside.

Yandere: Caring on the outside but psychotic inside.

Dandere: Shy on the outside but caring inside.

Deredere:...Pretty self-explanatory.

There's also Kamidere which is essentially someone who is caring but stuck up and treats people like servants (from what I understand).

I'm just curious as to what type most people prefer.

I don't really have a favorite, as long as they're well done it doesn't matter to me.

Tsundere, heavy on the Tsun. Kamidere are fun, too.

I'm torn between Kuudere, Yandere and Type-B Tsundere (Tropers know what I mean by this). I'll have to go with Kuudere because I can't stand the Rie-Tsunderes, they have no depth to them.

I'm guessing you haven't seen Toradora?

My favorites are usually the types who are cocky and bratty but also passionate and caring, so possibly Kamidere? Maybe because i have similar qualities to them. I find that those types have a similar proud attitude like a tsundere, but nowhere near as annoying and bad as tsunderes are.

The only one that I do not care for is some cases of Yandere.

I might be in the minority for this, but while I don't mind different dere characters, I prefer them not to be so. Most creators use 'dere' archetypes of ways as saying 'This character will act this way all the time and that'll be them sorted', it doesn't drive them to flesh out the character outside of maybe a flashback or being a childhood friend. Humans are complicated creatures in the sense that we don't really act one way all the time, and as such it can make characters seem a bit unconvincing. Like I say, I don't mind them, but given the choice I'd prefer a character that can't be classified due to acting one way.
