  • Physical. Well you can't really compare them, it's a bit like saying "Which is longer, a kilometer or a month?". But the worst possible physical pain is way worse than the worst emotional pain. And on the low end the limit of the function is 0 on both, so assuming both functions have a constant derivative (or at least sgn (f-g)=const.), physical pain must be worse. Just most people have never felt so much physical pain, but they've felt the awful pain of a breakup or something like that so they vote B

  • I would say emotional pain.
    When someone hits you or when you get hurt, you feel pain only during a certain period of time.
    But when someone hurts you emotionally, that pain might never go away. It haunts you. It's horrible.

  • I think when talking about short-term pain then it would be physical; Long-term pain would be emotional. The level of pain varies based on many factors.

  • Once physical pain ends, thats it you feel normal again. Emotional pain just sticks and comes back.
    Also. emotional pain can tramslate to very real physical pain. Heart contractions, shortness of breath, dizzyness, headaches.

  • Any physical heals. You may look down at an old wound and remember how tough that time was, but you will see a healer scar as well and know you've made it.

    But an emotional trauma haunts you forever, it may go away for some time, but can easily be triggered by similar events, tv shows with similar characters, pretty much anything. Theses scars hurt the heart and mind, the two most important organs for humans. It's a direct blow to each. And they do not recover so well.
