    could you explain the difference to "akin to" and "associate with" for me so I can better give an answer.

    i would say 'akin' to is who you're most like.... where as 'Be' would be if you could be any of them, even someone who isn't like you at all.

    'associate with' would be someone who you understand or feel for even though it's not a character you would choose to be or who you even associate with.

    Am i making any sense? LOL

    associate with would be Rose Daniels.
    Who would I be? hmmm, Susannah Dean -- not the schizo part, although all of these personalities are what make her, her. But she's a kick azz woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it and how to take care of herself and stick up for herself. She's strong.
    Who am I most like in real life? cujo

    Interesting questions!

    ...who would you be? If I could choose to be anyone I would be.... I have no idea! No one, probably. Maybe Erin from Joyland?
    or
    ....who do you feel most akin to? This one I really don't know. Maybe Louis Creed from Pet Sematary. I would do anything for my family to not die!
    or
    .....who do you most closely associate with or feel for? I feel most empathetic for the Trashcan Man in the Stand.

    REALLY? While Roland is a badass, I wouldn't want to be him for anything in the world. By far my favorite character (as I have him tattooed on my arm!) but such a sad, sad life.

    The first person to come to mind is Stu Redman, so that must be the one. He's just a guy, doing his best to be a good man. As much as I love Roland, Stu is who I think I'm most like.

    Who would I be? I don't know... I've always dreamed of playing Major League Baseball, so Tom Gordon maybe?

    Most akin to? Well, as I also grew up as a fat kid, probably Ben Hanscom.

    I feel for? Wireman for sure.

    I always liked Beverly Marsh. Thought she was pretty kick ass in her own way.

    I have always felt a closeness to Carrie White, as I was bullied for all 4 years of high school and also suffered an incident in the gym showers somewhat akin to Carrie being pelted with tampons (though in my case it was a tad more nasty). I don't need to go into details though.
    (I can't believe I actually just wrote this and hit "post." I've never told anyone about this).

    Man, when I was an angsty teenager I would have loved to just be the Trashcan Man for a day. Doing what he loves to do with no thought to consequence.

    At another point in my life I felt more like Danny Torrance. I survived an abusive alcoholic father and other horrible things in my childhood. My gifts helped me crawl up out of the ashes of my youth.

    Nah, just an overall melancholy outlook on life and I've always been a natural when it comes to weapons. Rifles, handguns, I speak their language...

    I know at last what I want to be when I grow up. When I grow up I want to be a little boy.
