What is personal infinitive?

My question was more related to, in which cases do we use personal infinitives, I think this hasn't been created for "kell" only?

The "olvasva" thing sounds awkward, but can't explan why...My question was more related to, in which cases do we use personal infinitives, I think this hasn't been created for "kell" only?
In the link I gave you there's a section down there saying "Other auxilliaries besides 'kell'".

I will train on these. I'm happy there are different words to express different cases
Just one particular construction : how would you say it when "all" is the subject ?
"All he can think about, is to get more money"
I would say instinctively something with "Mindet" but I am not sure "all" can be considered as accusative in that case
OK, ready to move to question 2 (sorry, I'm quite at the beginning now)
What is personal infinitive? I had a lesson yesterday and I found out in the sentence "Nekem kell írnom" (I must write /need to write) that írnom was no conditionnal, no indicative but the table I'm Learning from says it's personal infinitive. I know the concept of personal infinitive from Portuguese but I'm not sure this is the same meaning and this is used in the same way can someone just write a few sample sentences for me so I understand what it stands for ?
PS Levo, do you really speak Estonian? I started it but had to give up because it was confusing me on my Learning of Hungarian but I loved it (but had problems with partitive!!)

So I didn't bother learning the name of them (illative, inessive, etc...) and just learnt what they were for

Nekem az volt a benyomásom.
És a legnyíltabbak is, mégha az nem mindig egy jó dolog volt.

But >99% of the time we leave out the "nekem, neked, etc" part since it's always obvious what you mean.
france-eesti wrote:So I guess if you remove "nek**", then you have to guess with the remaining of the sentence who misses the thing they miss?
So, "I miss my sister": "hiányzik a lány testvérem"
"I miss her": hiányzik ?
