Do you like certain characters because they're similar to you?

When you have characters you like, is it because you feel you have something in common with them or are the differences more appealing to you?

A lot of my favorite characters are similar to me. I find them relatable, so naturally I'm drawn to them.

I like the rowdy ones, that being said I wish I was more rowdy (the ones that aren't like me are more appealing).

Most characters I like have a similarity to me so I can relate to them easier.

I think I like particular characters because they have desirable personalities or interesting personalities.

Like makoto tachibana... I think he's just desirable... I'm nothing like him

Thinking about my favorite characters, in some ways they are, but oftentimes they're more characters I can look up to.

Most of my favourite characters are characters that I can relate to or can feel a greater emotional attachment towards. This results in varying levels of similarity but generally they are the characters that are either a little crazy/unstable (or very), emotionally vulnerable or go through a lot of emotional hardship, plus some other traits including redhair for some reason.

Some of my fav characters, I can relate to them since they are kinda like me. The rest of my fav characters are different than me since I assume them as dating material.

Hell no. If I were drawn to characters similar to me, I would end up liking the most generic, boring, and bitchy twats in all of anime (basically 95% of main characters). The last thing I want is a reminder that the personality I am most similar to is the completely bland, annoying one that's surrounded by infinitely more interesting or sympathetic characters.
