there is a book out about how who you crush on on screen explains a little bit of what kind of person you like in real life. i like this hero from the kdrama healer. he pretends to be someone he is not to not give away his real identity.
My most admired characters are Lelouch from Code Geass and Light Yagami from Death Note. Anime, movie: same thing. Guess I'm a burn it all, utopia or nothing type who outwardly appears to be motivated by a greater good, while in actuality simply being a selfish, egotistical prick just doing self-serving shit. Except without a supernatural power. I also very much admire the geniuses. Does that make me a genius? :D
I admire Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl In The Dragon Tattoo" - I also like Saga Noren in "The Bridge" and Elise Wasserman in "The Tunnel" - They are three socially awkward characters possibly with mild aspergers but I like their logical take on life.
