    When I'm talking I use Я very rarely. Then again I don't use other pronouns very often either.

    Кушать хочу. Пойду в магазин. (They may be bad, but it's what I say :P.)

    When I write I use all the pronouns, but somehow it feels right to just say "что-то хочу." rather than "я хочу что-то."

    I'm not a native speaker and I am by no means fluent, so I understand that my way is probably the wrong way. Do you ever just omit the pronoun? Of course. Понял?

    Как я понял ты не говоришь "я" из принципа. Вот тут в чем смысл? :)

    Thanks, I'm missing the instrumental personal pronouns from my grammar stash. In fact, I didn't even know the proper name for that case .

    Out of every 1,000,000 words, "Я" occurs about 15,631.11 times.

    on the other hand ...

    Out of every 1,000,000 words, "Он" occurs about 18,942.62 times.

    "Он" ranks the 4th most popular Russian word.
    So for all you people who guessed "Я", YOUR WRONG!
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.
