Synonyms of "Person" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre Which person do you like? e 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!
