On another forum there was a discussion about how your chosen martial art can tell a lot about your personality.
Do you agree with that ?
If so, please make a co-relation between them

= Blending with opponent, redirecting force, no initial attacks
= Diplomatic personality, negotiation abilities, good investor

I think that someones personaluity will define their style, not vice versa, if you take an agressive martial art it does not nessicarily follow you are naturally aggressive, but if you are naturally aggressive i would say your game will reflect that to a degree.

But wouldn't you become more agressive if you stick with it for a period of time ?

What am I?:
I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.
I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

In pretty much every martial art ive seen first hand there is room for having a more offensive or defensive style, i guess you would conform to your surroundings in part, but i would argue this depends as much on the feel of the individual dojo as the art itself.

I concur. The type of people that are attracted to different martial arts make it so that your choice of art reflects your personality. Take someone who is very nonaggressive and demand that they take a hardcore MMA class and act like tigers and they'll more than likely drop out. Granted there are exceptions to every rule, but the softer the style, the more laid back the person.

thats not quite true ... some of the more "aggresive arts" such as wrestling or judo have some of the nicest people you'll ever meet ...

"Nice" does not necessarily mean "Laid back." Arts such as wrestling or judo which are very intense physically and mentally often scare away practicioners who are not very aggressive to begin with. Granted, there are exceptions to every rule as I said, but I stand by that as a general principle, the softer the art, the more laid back the practicioners tend to be.

everybody ive ever met in judo or wrestling is more laidback than any other martial arts i've known ...

I really believe that this is true. I don't criticize anyone's art, but I know many of them aren't for me. There is one art in particular that is very well marketed all over the United States. It never appealed to me even though it is readily available. I do not mean that it isn't right for some people, but not for me. The balance of kenpo with boxing, trapping, low line kicks, take downs, and grappling, blended with animal forms, fit my personality perfectly. I think that the type of body a person has, has a lot to do with it. I like to watch the Northern Shaolin forms, but even as a young man, I didn't have the body build or flexability to do them well. One nice thing about studying martial arts is that there is something for everyone. The cane as,a martial arts weapon, is gaining in popularity for individuals who are getting on a bit in years
