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

...Yes it does...very much

...Notice the humble, gracious, funny, good fighters are the ones best liked. Lesnar took some serious heat flipping birds at UFC 100. Tito sparked a lot of like or dislike because of his behavior. The badboy still gets booed everywhere..lol! Chuck had that cool, laid back attitude along with that "Tyson" effect at one time. Rampage & Forrest are hilarious and give some of the best interviews. Evans has been booed for a while. Now after TUF, Rashad seems to be getting more cheers.
...If you're a sore loser and make excuses putting on lack-luster performances, it's bound to snowball on ya...
