I have fount it beneficial in my writing to analyze my characters, really see how they think. I have used Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to help define my understanding. Maybe it will help you too. (Note: I am a terribly geeky psychology major as you can see. Heh.) [Disclaimer: MBTI designations are to distinguish cognitive functions. The letters are not necessarily dichotomies.]
The Personality Types:
You can take a test. There are many online. This is one I found.
It is 72 yes or no questions.
I myself am a PROUD INTJ. ;)
Here are some of my characters:
Dr. Alexandra Steele/The Psyentist: INTJ
(An intelligent, theoretical mind, less likely to express emotions unless values or person is insulted.)
(Uniquely intelligent, well-perceiving abstract thought but gets lost in the real world because of too much thinking.)
(Cold, calculating with a technical intelligence but with a penchant for breaking rules.)
PsyKnight/Dr. Jean Quentin: INFJ
(Jean is very compassionate, but also very intelligent and rule/pattern oriented.)
Queen Cobra/Evelyn Queen: ENTJ
(Evelyn is a leader, she loves being around people, but she isn't good at tolerating stupidity for long if it affects her team structure.)
