Do objectively disabled people seem to work harder to overcome their handicap than subjectively disabled people?
By objective, I mean people who have lost a fundamental ability. I am referring to blind people, deaf people, paraplegics etc.
By subjective, I mean people who have agoraphobia, gender identy disorders, who are obese, anxious, socially awkward etc.
The former group, in general, seems to be inclined to go out and do their best. Almost as if to prove their disability is not really a disability. As if it were a matter of pride.
The latter, at least in my experience, seem to sit around and feel sorry for themselves and use their disability as an excuse for failure.
Do you make the same general observation?
