For the most part my fursona is me, slight differences such as my fursona is more social.

For the most part it is; I changed it a little to reflect more of what I want myself to be as well as being more sociable, but other than that it's just me.

Given the MSLT test on this site by request some time ago, a (not so shocking) discovery was made about the people on this site. Extrapolation to a few people I knew that were willing to indulge me confirmed that's it's not completely isolated to younger members of the fandom, as this:

We are rife with Mary Sues and Marty Stus.

I am not an exception to this; actually, I score as an MS for all five of my main characters, including my three fursonas.

However, the takeaway, and what I want to point out: Our fursonas are not so much us as who we often wish we could be, and that's how it should be. I'd hate to think that a character created in a fandom about something originally called a "funny animal" wasn't made for fun, after all.

My fursona didn't score as a Mary Sue, but partly due to the fact I've gone out of my way to make him a fundamentally worse individual than me - he's basically me x2, all the flaws magnified easily eclipse the good :D

I originally established a backstory and unique set of personality traits for my character. But I soon began to imagine myself as him, and he inevitable became "me" in the sense that he shared a similar background, shared all of our views, and shared many mannerisms. Now he simply serves as an avatar to represent myself within this community. I don't really base any fiction/lore around him anymore.

Faraway is as I am. Strange, awkward, challenged with abandonment issues... She even bears the same scars as I do on the right side of her face. She's a feline, and she's an insomniac, just like me. Other than walking on golden paws, Faraway is how I'd see myself if this world were perfect. :fox-;):
With love, from Faraway.

Yep, my fursona is pretty much exactly me but furry. He has the same glasses and headfur/hair too, so people instantly recognize who he is when they see me drawing him :P

My fursona's essentially me. I wrote out a list of personality and behavioural characteristics, and I realised how much we overlapped. Basically, we have the same core views and ideas, but we've developed ourselves differently, so different aspects are more prominent in each of us.

(My fursona's sexier than me, though. /shot)

  I have yet to scan in my sketches, but yes, my fursona is exactly myself save for the fact that he's an anthro coyote and obviously much sexier. And that's saying something.
I only think in the form of crunching numbers.

Mathias is me or well, he is the character that represents me within the fandom and on the internet.
His name has changed twice over the last few years, and his likes differ and change as mine do.
He is just me if I were a furry.
Don't push the panic button.

Kinda, I base my fursona off of tails from the sonic games, at least in appearance, sadly I can't think of an animal that suits me better
