Como dizer "Me identifiquei" em inglês

Uma dúvida que me pegou de jeito foi com o "Me identifiquei".
Exemplos:
- "No qual me identifiquei logo pois..."
- "No qual me identifico muito"

Alguns lugares vi que pode se utilizar I identified myself outros o Identify with..., qual seria o "mais" correto para se utilizar?
No exemplo "No qual me identifico muito" fica correto dizer "In which I identify with it a lot"?

Para situações não relacionada a pessoas, como por exemplo, "Logo me identifiquei com a cultura dos EUA", "Me identifiquei com essa música", também se utiliza essa regra?
  • I soon got into the American culture. [Logo me identifiquei com a cultura dos EUA.]
  • Me identifiquei com essa música. [I'm really into this song.]
Referência: (Thefreedictionary)
Get into: To become interested in or passionate about something.
My daughter has gotten into sports all of sudden.
Ugh, I just can't get into that show—the acting is terrible.
Referência (falante nativo): "I really got into their culture and unique way of life, and ate foods like sushi, fried octopus and Japanese barbecue."

'Identify with' não é uma boa opção em nenhum dos contextos deste post. Você pode ser entendido, mas não é algo muito natural/comum.
  • Eu me identifico muito com eles. [I think we have a lot in common. / I like them, I think we have a lot in common.]
  • Eu logo me identifiquei com ela. [I liked her straight away.]
Happy studying!

Se identificar com algo = to be able to relate to something.

Eu me identifico com isso = I can relate to that.

"No qual me identifico muito" = which I can really relate to.

In English they prioritize words that don't seem like Latin or romance languages (when cognates)
So they use "give up" more than "desist", "hate" than "detest" (or - dislike intensely, can't bear, feel aversion, etc.

Identify (with) - I think falls in that category, or almost, but you can see it scattered in writings out there. For instance:
It is well-written and has an interesting plotline, one I can identify with.
That's a perfect textbook example we can use. In this context, we can say the writer of the sentence meant either he/she "relate to" the specific plot of the book or "the plotline is something that inspires him/her" (he reads that kind of plotline - that would be the second type of "identifying himself with.")

As Leonardo pointed out, there are other likely meanings in context: relate to, be in sympathy, put oneself in the shoes of, put oneself in the place of - as in "I put myself in his place, and because I'm familiar with his circumstances.".
It could also be that something "...strikes or touches a chord/hits home, etc.
Para situações não relacionada a pessoas, como por exemplo, "Logo me identifiquei com a cultura dos EUA", "Me identifiquei com essa música", também se utiliza essa regra?

It's not a rule set in stone, but yes, normally you can use it. In the case of the given sentences, I would say that "I soon identified myself with the American culture." which would be in the sense of "I soon identified myself with the ideas, ideals, or the mores of that culture." It would be in a more general sense.

In that case could be also in the sense of "I relate to American culture" in a given situation, say if you are discussing a scene of a movie in which a guy feels uncomfortable with someone getting too close (and you don't like people getting into your personal space. That is, it's a specific situation you can relate to.

Similarly, but with a subtle difference is the case of the music sentence:
I relate to that music (it evoke memories, triggers emotions, feelings, felt at the time).

That kind of music is something I identify myself with. (that is my thing, I am associated with, that is what I like to listen, etc).

Although sometimes both nuances may (or may not) intersect, Amy Winehouse said in an interview:
And I have plenty of exes, so I can immediately identify myself with that song. ... You have to be thrifty with that kind of music.

That is, that song she referred to evokes memories, and is something she sings, something she is into.
