Do tigers have personality types?

T28 ( Star Male )

T-28, aka the Star Male of Ranthambhore ( ..because he has a star shaped mark above his right eye ) – the tiger who studiously avoids looking into my camera lens, or making any kind of eye contact with me, no matter what.

Quite the opposite of his compadre, T24- ( Ustaad sahib ) from the other side of the park, whose unwavering and penetrating gaze will make you squirm uncomfortably in your safari jeep.

When you see a tiger in the jungle are you looking at just a tiger or at a unique individual? Can tigers be psychologically classified?  I tend to think so.
