Synonyms of "Person" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Which person do you like? and What person do you like? ?
A: 'which' = choosing from a list.
'what' = choosing in general.

1a. Which would you like to eat? = Choose from 3 things in front of you.
1b. Which one would you like to eat? 1a is really 1b, with the 'one' dropped.

2. What would you like to eat? = You could eat anything, what do you feel like eating? What (kind of food) would you like to eat?

So, in your example, 'which person' feels like choosing from a list. You could say 'What kind of person do you like?' to ask in general what type of person (not a specific person).

Hope that helps!

A: @leopard7
lol I said it wasn't wrong … but we don't say it that way mostly.
It's kind of a country slang way to speak or an old fashioned way I guess.

Country music will often say things like "he done wrong", southerners will say it.
It think it is an shortened expression of " done something wrong" .. I guess they feel the "something" would be implied.

'If you have done something wrong to another person, you should go and tell him or her what you have done before asking for forgiveness."
would be the way to say it.
