I came across an article today on FitSugar that was quite interesting. I always think about why people do what they do and this article talks about why some people may faint or feel faint when they see blood. They say it can be due to a blood-injury phobia.
"The idea is that back in time, when someone was coming at someone else with a sharp stick or rock, a kind of genetic variation allowed certain people to faint in response," explains Tyler C. Ralston, PsyD, a clinical psychologist in Honolulu, who treats people with blood-injury phobias. Warriors who fainted looked dead and were passed over during battle. The blood pressure drop also might have helped those who were wounded avoid bleeding to death. Survivors then passed on the "fainting" gene.
So I'm thinking that if you faint or feel faint around blood, you probably weren't much of a fighter. You needed to play dead to avoid a confrontation. If blood doesn't bother you, then you like to get a little rough. That's just my take on the article.
I'm definitely a fighter, by the way. Bring it.
