What type of narrator do you find more reliable for characters going through self-examination and personal growth? First person or close third? It feels like it is a little hard to make my question clear. I guess I am wondering if first person POV is believable if the character is learning things about her self. I don't walk around and say things to myself in clearly constructed sentences like "Now that I see my neighbor with his shirt off I am attracted to him." It's more like I see him with his shirt off and the actual words that go through my head are "Holy S**t" but it would take a third person POV to explain to an audience that I reacted that way because I realized I was attracted to my neighbor.
