Re: Animagus/Patronus, not the same?

I've wondered this. It's a bit strange to me that one's Patronus is the same as the animal that reflects his or her personality. It makes sense with an Animagus because the animal the person turns into is supposed to reflect him or her. However, in PoA Lupin tells Harry that the Patronus takes the form of a guardian/protection to the individual person.

Then why do so many characters have their Patronuses match their personalities rather than whatever they see as a sign of protection? With Harry it makes sense because he probably sees his father this way. And people in love probably see their significant other as a source of happiness and strength. But what about Ron and Hermione? Do they see themselves (assuming the jack terrier and otter reflect their personalities) as such?
