1. The rule.
So + "verb" + I is used if you want to say that a positive statement is also true for you.
  
Neither + "verb" + I is used if you want to say that a negative statement is also true for you.
  
2. How to write the verb correctly?
 
If we have "am / is / are (not)" in the statement, we use "am" in the reply.
If we have "have / has (not)" (for possessions) in the statement, we use "have" in the reply.
If we have "can(not)" in the statement, we use "can" in the reply.
If we have other verbs - (don't / doesn't go), do, like, play, etc. and have (for actions) - in the statement, we use "do" in the reply.
