I have a question everytime I watch TV or a film I tend to take on the personality of of the character, for exmaple if I watch Malcolm in the middle I take on his personality without will it is just forced on me. This is not limited to TVs and films. It's hard to explain but it's Basicly like I automatically take on other personality a which in a lot of cases are completely different from each other, can anyone give me any insight to what's going on thanks.

I am the opposite. I am always looking for characters with personality similar to my and I identify only with them while watching/reading something. I cannot personize with any character that doesn't seem like me. It makes watching/reading some stuffs boring since sometimes I can't any character acting similar as I would do.
