Actually, I think the type of pain matters in this discussion. If you get sucker punched in the face, I'm pretty sure you aren't thinking, "MMM.. Weakness leaving the body". But if it's muscle failure during an athletic event, you can kinda fight through it mentally.

Yeah that is what was being explained to us in Recruit training. Who had cramps this morning in PT?... well Drink some water it is just pain. At first you hear it and your like whatever if it hurts i am not going to do it... I finally figured it out.. if it hurts enough this time i will be able to do more of it next time i have to do it. It is JUST pain.

If you watched "The Real World" season premire you would have seen exactly what I meant, a guy was blind-sided in the face when he was down, and the bone right under his left eye was fractured. Before he went to the emergency room I'll bet he wasn't thinking about shutting off signals from his face to his brain. Just like when in hockey some kid's slapshot catches me in between padding, and it feels like my whole arm was blown off and me elbow is re-fractured, I am not thinking about how it's a state of mind or any stupid noble shit like that, I wait for it to go away enough so I can continue playing.

nerve pain (ie when nerve receptors have been damaged) would be very hard to intentionally blockout. however, i understand that if something big does happen then the body will go into shock and for whatever reason you wont feel the pain as much. i would like to see a guy get shot and overhear him saying "this is good for me, ahhhh, bye bye weakness"

however, self induced exercise related pain, well that can be worked through and ignored. its fatigue and the muscle tearing ever so slightly and is completely different from actually have a nerve damaged

I think to some degree pain is a state of mind. Why is it that men seem to find pain more intense than women

But there is also emotional pain as well, something not so easy to block out or get rid of.
