Are first person novels more personal?

This is a personal answer. How it seems to me. Other writers may see things differently.

I believe first person novels are more personal, not because of anything intrinsic about the writing itself but, rather, because the act of writing in the first person takes the author deeply into the view-point character’s mind, thoughts, feelings, etc.

The result is a deeper personal narrative than is normally achieved through other kinds of view-points.
