I've found that I share a few traits with all of the main cast of Eva.

Like Shinji, I often seek the approval of others.

Like Misato, I often distract myself by focusing on having fun.

Like Rei, I sometimes feel confused by social interactions.

Like Asuka, I sometimes feel anger when people don't act the way I want them to.

Like everyone in the same show, I think I fear being alone more than anything else. I often go out of my way to get others to like me, helping them with things I don't want to do.

Same here. To be more precise, however:

Like Asuka, I am crushed by failure, and hardly ever rebound from it.

Like Rei, I am self-abnegating, interpersonally awkward, and quiet. (Although she takes these characteristics to extremes.)

Like Gendo, I have a tendency to distance myself from those I love, for fear of hurting them.

Those are the main parallels that come to mind.
We lie to ourselves every day, we know it, and we can’t do anything about it. We get along with other people by humoring their delusions. When we don’t, they hate us, and we are alone.

I'm currently in this weird place where my position and struggles in life begins to be closer to Misato's than that of the Pilots.

Hang in there. It's painful, but necessary. I just hope, I'll never have to relate to Gendou... Wouldn't mind relating to Fuyutsuki that much, though.

I'd have to say that I'm also closest to Misato than any other character. I'm active duty military, doing what I can to take my career where I want it to go (ultimately to retirement before I turn 40 ^_^ ) but sometimes things happen that are just totally beyond your control. Luckily, the 2-star that I work for is NOTHING like Gendo, so there's that. :emogendo:

U.S. Navy, Administration and my Warfare Qualification is Expeditionary Warfare. I've done two tours with the SEALs (no, I'm not a SEAL myself) and am trained for ground combat support. Just because I'm an admin guy doesn't mean I can't kick down doors too. :wink:
