I actually know that a groin shot which didn't properly land may start to hurt only after the adrenaline goes down after a situation on the street. And a good friend's acquaintance told that he thought only to have been punched in the torso when he woke up from coma after having got stabbed. Another one I know of just felt it getting warm around the area of his kidneys (due to his blood), before passing out.

BUT groin shots and knife stabs are a different thing than eye pokes. With the eye it's not necessarily so much about pain, it's more about uncontrollable reaction. You just can't control the tears to start to run and thereby obscuring your vision and you barely can't control your eyes from squinting, because that's just an automatic reaction.
Fair enough. I often overreact on this topic because I've heard so many people tell me that they could beat Fedor with an eye-gouge or groin shot...

Well kin pretty much said everything better than I would have should I have attempted.

In a fight against myself where one of me is allowed to use gouges, throat strikes, groin kicks etc he/I would garnish no advantage while standing.

That would be ridiculous indeed. The average guy would still lose to Fedor or any top ranked MMA HW even if these were handicapped by being handcuffed behind their backs. Self defense is to get the odds on your side and trying to use every advantage there is, but it can be that the opponent is still stronger and then you just lose if you can't run away. Chances are high to "win" if the opponent was about the same size with the same or just little higher physical abilities in the first place, but if his abilities surmount the victim a lot, chances will still be low. That's why sometimes people with weapons lose to unarmed opponents. Basic chances were increased by the weapons, but not enough for that specific opponent.

Maybe I just missed it, if so I am sorry, but I'm sort of suprised that no one has gone ahead and more clearly defined the scenerio we are debating. As mentioned previously the answer basically is it depends on the situation.
I'll say that for one thing, it depends on your natural abilities and inclinations as to what you are best at. It's not so much what is the best style but more, what is the best style for ME.
