Q: When you speak in different languages does it change your personality?
A: Evidently I don't have much of a personality regardless of the language I am speaking. I'm still looking for that elusive language in which I have a personality.

Q: When you speak/write in different languages, does your personality change?
A1: Je peux vous assurer avec certitude qu'il n'y a aucun tel effet
A2: Nope - by the way, it's none of your business so you can go to hell with all your damned snooping
A3: Nein
A4: tja, hm, det tror jeg ikke -hvad mener du?
A5: Natuurlik verander die persoonlikheid - vertrou nie die vier vorige stemme nie.
A6: Εγώ υποστηρίζω τα αντίθετα που εκφωνούνται από τις τέσσερις πρώτες προσωπικότητες
A7: Estoy profundamente en desacuerdo con las honorables personalidades arriba.

Learning Japanese from zero by listening.
I don't think there are any working Japanese Zeros any more, and I don't think you could learn a language from them, try a book instead.
