    So do I & Neither do I

    1. I didn't enjoy it.'
    'I did.'
    'So did I.'

    2. 'I don't fancy it.'
    'So do I.'
    'I do.'

    Can you please explain why the answers are 1. I did, 2. I do.
    Why I can't say that 1.So I did, 2. So do I

    If one person says that they don't/didn't enjoy something, the other person that enjoys/enjoyed that something says, I do/did.
    If one person says they fancy/fancied something, the other person that doesn't/didn't fancy that something says, I don't/didn't.

    If two people share the same, positive opinion about something, the person that agrees with the words of another person says, So do/did I.
    If two people share the same, negative opinion about something, the person that agrees with the words of another person says, Neither do/did I. Compare:

    I love jazz.
    So do I.

    I loved that movie.
    So did I.

    I don't like cheese.
    Neither do I.

    I didn't see her at work today.
    Neither did I.
