I have to agree with you on all counts here, including not liking Al or Bernie, but liking Chris and identifying with Eva characters (let's see, I usually as quite and reserved as Rei when around people I don't know, and can get as bitchy as Asuka when I'm tired or have a migraine. There are also some other characters I can identify with in there, but let's not bring up all my problems here).
