According to this the gene responsible makes ginger haired people more sensitive to pain and need more anaesthetic.

I was always led to believe that Red-Heads had a bit of a temper.

He had a high pain threshold, and was even tempered.

One of my girlfriends was a redhead. She had a low pain threshold, and was fiery, to say the least.

The 'bit of a temper' thing with redheads is a myth. I don't know about the pain gene, but I suspect it's a red herring.... sorry.

The ginger haired do suffer with a pain in the neck a lot due to all the idiot name calling

I always thought red/ginger haired people were nice. But maybe I was swayed by a certain female film star back in the 40's - 50's? It wasn't Ginger Rogers either.

Interesting link. With regard to going through life with red hair, yes, some suffer name calling at school, but after that is out of the way things get a lot better. There is no downside to having red hair, it's all good......and I am not just talking about Prince Harry.
Not that long ago a woman stopped me in the city centre and told me that she had met me very briefly about 12 years ago. I was struggling at this point and expressed the opinion that she had a pretty amazing memory. No, not at all she said "I recognized you straight away - can you not guess why......! "
I have to disagree with our FE about red hair + temper. I have noticed this tendency in quite a few women, and men, so I think there is something in it.
