What would Special Defense be in real life?

#1warriorman222Posted 8/14/2014 2:12:54 PM(edited)
I mean, i can substitute the others:
HP: Endurance, the amount of pain you can take, how long you can run or exert yourself
Attack: Your physical strength
Defense: Your ability to take physical injuries or hits.
Special Attack: Your intelligence or cleverness.
Special Defense: ???????????????????
Speed: Your Overall Agility and Dexterity, as well as speed.

Ideas please?

I feel like special attack is your ability to project energy as a means of damaging, rather than raw physical force. So Special Defense is just your ability to resist energy projected from other beings.

So basically, like the ability to control your own attitudes and dispositions to counter negative external stimuli.
