Default Bodybuilder versus Powerlifter

What is more impressive to you...

--A bodybuilder who is able to cross compete in powerlifting and show that bodybuilders aren't weaklings and can build strength with what is considered hypertrophy ranges.

--A powerlifter who is able to cross compete in bodybuilding and show that strength training also builds muscle.

This isn't meant to start a holy war, but I think it's an interesting question.

Which of these 2 paradigms shattered your personal beliefs about lifting? Is one of these more prevalent than the other, meaning are bodybuilders more likely to be strong, or are powerlifters more likely to be muscular?

Or do you believe cross competitors are just freaks?
