For me, it's Miles (Paul Giamatti) from the film Sideways. Also, Jack Nicholson's character from As Good As It Gets, but not as much.

EDIT: I'd also say Ricky Fitts from American Beauty. I'd forgotten how great that movie is, I really need to watch it again.

Frankie (Combat Shock)
Jim Dodge (Career Opportunities)
Marcus Templeton (Even Hitler Had a Girlfriend)
Allen (Happiness)

Actually, I take that all back...As far as my day-to-day life goes, I'd say I relate most to the the female torture victim from the first Guinea Pig.

Lars from Lars & The Real Girl, to some extent. It's about the only one I can think of, I don't know a lot of movies with SA type characters in them.

"Smithy" from the film "Random Harvest" -- especially at the beginning of the film where he is trying so hard to speak and getting frustrated with himself. Also, the fact that everyone treats him like a child/invalid because of his inability to communicate is so familiar. :\
