Oho yes. I have one character that's basically me if I was a monster-race-type-thing (Basically a yeti crossed with an orc), and I have a character that has some of my traits, but has a lot of things unique to himself as well.

Previously, but no longer. They were phased out for a decidedly more different cast of characters, though I like to think that each of them has a smaller facet of myself within their innate character composition.

From my own personal experience, the latter of the two is preferable from both a writing and sharing standpoint. The characters (ironically, in my case) became more believable, and the sharing less a direct extension of myself, and more a creative exercise in the manipulation of many different figures.

I'm not sure, however, if it's possible to write a character that has nothing to do with the author. Sure, you could aim for the polar opposite, but even that comparison implies that there's something, or someone, that they are different from. And I think it's important, though perhaps it's naive, to have your characters be at least slightly related to you (even if only something so small as the same preference in coffee), just so that you can feel a connection with them.

Most of my characters wre still in my head. I have to get them out on paper to decide if any of them are a skinny video game playing slacker.

I have a char or two who represents certain aspects of my personality, magnified. I'm way to boring to self insert or I'd just write a biography instead of fiction.

I more or less made 2 characters specifically as faucets of my somewhat maniacally different emotional states.
Tl;dr yes, I have one for happy and flirty and melancholy but orderly.

oddly no. my personality seems to be ever changing and is about as deranged as it gets. one moment I have an english accent the next i'm talking ghetto trash. I practically have no personality of my own to mirror it just mirrors the other personalities around me. there are as many of me as there are people in the same room o3o

Gonna be honest here, yes. Well, it's me with wolf-based powers, and drawing inspiration from Power Rangers like having a Wolfzord and battling magical and technological based villains. I will also put myself into stories revolving around my female characters.

As for carbon copy I think maybe one or two.
