    MMA Fighters and Why Personality Matters (Or Does It?)

    MMA Fighters and Why Personality Matters (Or Does It?)
    By James Ryan



    Human nature dictates that we tend to like people that most remind us of ourselves. Not necessarily in appearance (I know what you’re thinking…James Ryan and Brad Pitt must be like two peas in a pod).

    I’m referring of course, to personality.

    I took an on-line quiz once that matched up my “management personality” with a famous leader in history. I’ll let you stew on that one for a minute or two first.

    This generalization is not set in stone of course, as each human being is different in a variety of ways. Some things however, aren’t as different as you may think.

    Assuming that you are not the self-loathing type who possesses incredibly low confidence and self-esteem, then the reality is that you would likely be drawn to a another person based on a human “connection.”

    We are drawn to values and personal characteristics that remind us of ourselves and of our own moral beliefs.

    For example, if you are a huge believer in sportsmanship and honor (notice the use of the “u,” eh?), then some fighters like Shinya Aoki or Tito Ortiz may be a major turn-off for you, and you would in turn, boo them at any given chance...

    Only partially works for me, it's not as easy as the author states. I'm a supporter of sportsmanship, but I like Aoki for his control on the ground, which is an interesting issue for me. And I especially like him for his last fight. Maybe because I hate Hirota more for being unfair in that one, it kinda satisfied me seeing his arm broken and aoki giving him the finger. Still i wouldn't want to fight against someone behaving like Aoki and I think Aoki could lose my sympathy pretty easily when doing something respectless the next time. Still I like his respectless superiority... I don't know.
