Movie Characters Most Like Me

Updated: Aug 21, 2018

During my Consumer Behavior Marketing class Fall Term 2017, I realized that many movies purposely include a variety of different characters so that viewers can identify with them. I began wondering, "What movie characters do I identify with?"

Here's the result:


Let's start with Steve from Arthur Christmas. He's a perfectionist; driven to succeed at all costs. He's orderly, smart, and tech-savy. He's the oldest son, the clear leader, and he always read the instructions. He'd rather be on time than hold a conversation, which means he has difficulty empathizing with others. The good news is, he realizes this and improves a great deal.


Alright, what about Casey Newton from Tomorrowland?

Well, she's got a determination that goes beyond rationality. When she has her mind set on something, it is almost impossible to distract her. As a result, she often appears distant and obsessed to those around her. The good news is, she has a strong sense of wonder. Everything and everywhere is a new experience and a new opportunity to learn something amazing. Wow.

Finally, Klaus Baudelaire from A Series of Unfortunate Events.

He likes to read--that much is clear. And if he doesn't know something, he knows exactly where to find it. The only things he enjoys more than research is telling others about his research--even if no one else is listening. Books aren't Klaus's only friends, however. He loves his two sisters very much, and is always willing to give them a helping hand or a listening ear when they need it.
