Redheads are more sensitive to opiates (thus requiring less) but require greater amounts of anesthesia so no firm conclusion can be drawn since the two kind of go against each other.Quote:

As far as actual pain tolerance I'd call that more a a matter of will to continue despite pain and the will to continue is going to vary depending on circumstance. Things that will make me want to take a break in sparring wont even phase me during a fight because the situations are different. In part that could be chalked up to adrenaline but I believe it also has a lot to do with what's on the line.
