Why do some people have a higher pain tolerance ?

I see woman walk around in heels for 8 hours a day at their waitressing jobs

While I can barely walk around in running shoes for 8 hours a day

    I have wondered that same thing myself. I think sometimes it's due to heredity, long exposure to pain which dulls the pain receptors, stength of character, God giving them this gift, and sometimes it's due to state of mind or having a higher amount of endorphins in the brain that lowers their pain threshold.
