How are aikidoka different?

Here is a snippet from another thread

In my experience, aikidoka do not display a greater sense of morality or spirituality on average than any other group of people.

I can't say that I've found Aikidoka to be particularly "spiritual" or "moral." Perhaps slightly more "present," but I suspect I'd find that in Karateka as well. Maybe slightly more "gentle," although that was certainly true in my experience for oarsmen as well.
I guess I'm throwing it open to hear whether other people have noticed differences that make the aikidoka they now stand out.

Yours in Aiki
