Well, Harry was obviously a better person than the Dursleys already before he even knew he was a wizard and first met the Weaslys. And that's saying something, as he was only eleven years old.

Yeah, I find it really amazing, that Harry turned out normal after such a terrible childhood, when he didn't have anybody to confide in or to love him. I maybe didn't expect Harry to become like the Dursleys, even though many abused children do grow up to become like their abusers. But I wouldn't have been surprised, if he would have suffered from some other mental problems, or "at least" something like a severe depression or an extremely low self-esteem, but it seems like he turned out just fine. I just have to say, "go Harry". He sure was "the Chosen One".
