Masashi Kishimoto interprets his own persona through his characters Naruto and Kiba. from the series.
when he was asked by the interviewer if he was to choose a female character that would be for his liking he said that it would be Hinata and there’s no doubting it.
he said that he liked girls that are shy-types, has more feminity and has this gentle touch that could make him squirm.
He also said that if he chose Sakura he’d be brutally murdered and he wouldn’t be able to last a relationship like that. after that answer he laughed… I mean really he laughed!!
