Second part (looking for a possible correlation?): Is the sight if blood more likely to make you squeamish, or an odd form of excitement/adrenaline?
Blood itself does not bother me, but I don't like to see humans or animals suffer.
It depends. Blood from Children and animals make me momentarily squeamish. Adult blood, not really a problem. Either one, I just want to help.
When I see blood my brain goes into help mode. I get excited (in a hurried way) and begin thinking what to do to help.
"Excite" is definitely the wrong word, but it usually indicates some sort of crisis requiring my involvement / intervention...
I work at a karate dojo. Blood is part of the job and doesn't bother me at all.
I don't want to say excited, but I jump into action to fix the problem.
My oldest son had my middle son in the shopping cart doing wheelies. He tipped it over and my son broke his leg. He carried him home I stabilize the leg splendid it and stabilize my son to a board. Our pediatrician was very impressed.
I treated him for shock also.
It intrigues me. I always watch when I get blood taken. And I have no problem stepping up to help when there's a situation with blood.
Neither it me want to take action and care for whatever's going on to stop the bleeding.
I like it.. A little too much...
I turn very pale, begin sweating and feel faint when it comes to blood and guts.
So that's what happened to your career as a surgeon?
It really just grosses me out - I don't feel faint or anything
Blood doesn't bother me.
Im not the least bit squeamish but it doesnt excite me either.
I'm not at all squeamish about the sight of blood, but I don't find it at all exciting either. It's just blood. My only interest is that it be, preferably, not mine.
The most "squeamish" reaction I've ever had to blood was when I accidentally cut my thumb open and went "oh, I'm bleeding" and started to clean it up before it got everywhere.
I get the odd form of adrenaline o.O though my nerves get shot if it's a large excessive amount... I get uneasy and start shaking after the fact, I suppose because I know that that much blood shouldn't be out of a body.
