I think andrew brings up a point that I'm not sure was considered: did the people in question have to say WHY they chose as they did?
To me, it seems more likely that one's status as "mean" is going to change than one's status as disabled. In most cases, the latter isn't really reversible (to my understanding, and by all means please correct me if I'm wrong). Some people look a little beyond the "rules" of the question; my answer would probably be the same not because of which I value more, so much as which choice would theoretically leave me with the option of having the best of both options. (This obviously delves into other serious issues, and suggests something about my worldview of them, about fatalism and the chance for redemption, or Redemption for that matter)
