    I watch a lot of video's similar to mine because it inspires ideas and gives me more of an idea of what works and what doesn't plus I really enjoy the type of content similar to mine :D

    Yea, I watch a lot of vlogs. Not only does it inspire me, but it's just one of my favorite types of videos and it always has been ever since I discovered YouTube. I also watch a lot of "how-to make a vlog" or "vlogging tips" type videos too.

    I often feel like you.

    If I’ve made friends with someone I’ll watch but honestly I don’t have time to sit through hours of video. Also I don’t want to subconsciously copy another person style because it happens to everyone if you do that enough. When I do a specific topic I search out other videos to see what they’ve left out but I wait until mine is mostly done before doing that

    Awesome! I watch similar content to my own for pretty much the same reasons, 30% inspiration 70% just plain ol' enjoyment.. But often times I watch videos that I'd LOVE to be able to do but can't do them properly..!

    Sometimes! My "genre" is so niche that I love to see what other similar creators are up to, and what they're getting inspiration from.

    I personally only watch them for my own enjoyment or only if I've already done a review of that game as I find that the reviewer influences me and I find myself repeating lines they've just said :)

    All the time, actually! A big part of my content is what inspired me to start with the YouTube channel in the first place! Seeing other big creators-gamers like PewDiePie and Markiplier come up with awesome content and commentary definitely invites a spark and raises a question, like - Hm... Can I do better? How can I put together something I like with something I can add to it and be successful? Yup. Haven't gotten to the successful part yet, but it shall come :) One day!

    I do but, without sounding a pretentious ****, I try to make stuff that's different from channels that are in the same genre as myself. Kinda gives me ideas on how not to be like everyone else.

    A learning tool, more or else.

    I don't normally watch content on the same games I play, partly because I find that I start comparing myself too much and also because it hurts my creative process. I also have a bad tendency to compare and then get discouraged, so it's usually just best for me to focus on my own content. I mean it's useful to understand what kind of content works, but usually I look at channels that play different games to do that kind of research and then I apply those ideas to the game I'm playing. I just like having my creative process be really organic and I don't want to dwell too much on how other similar channels are doing.

    It could be really useful for some people but for me, when I start comparing content I don't think it gives me a good mindset. I just start questioning if my quality is bad or if my quality is better why my video did worse... it's too distracting.
