Do some people just not feel pain? I see some people able to push through a painful situation, and others who cannot.

According to some researchers, the Multidimensional Pain Inventory can be used to classify people with pain into three subgroups. Two of the three subgroups are at greater risk for misinterpreting their pain, coping with it poorly, and will likely have chronic pain.

A. C. Rusu, M. Hasenbring, Multidimensional Pain Inventory derived classifications of chronic pain: Evidence for maladaptive pain-related coping within the dysfunctional group. PAIN. January 2008. 134. Issue 1-2.Pp. 80-90.
