I know the idiomatic usage of "somebody's kind of place/person/thing" to mean the types of place, person or thing that someone usually likes. But what about using it in the context below?
I don't have his kind of mental strength.
Is this considered proper usage of the phrase?
For the purpose of clarification, I intended for the above sentence to have the same meaning as:
I don't have the kind of mental strength he does.
Is it awkward to have a possessive pronoun before 'kind of XXX' instead of a normal pronoun after it to denote that XXX is of the type belonging/relating to the pronoun?
Many thanks in advance.
