1) 赢 - not sure why. Maybe it's the 3 open-ended components on the bottom, like 3 brothers. Also it's apparently from an old character for "mule", but with the horse component replaced with a money component.

2) 之 - same reasons as everyone else

3) 丫 - I just think it looks awesome, and it's easy to remember

4) favorite component: 隹 - because I can scratch out all those lines quickly and feel like a writing whiz

I'm still a beginner but here a few of my favorites so far:

我,家, 中, 里

My favorite changes upon my mood I guess but most often I really like 中 because of its simplicity.
