    kind vs. sort

    Hi,

    There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong...or useless pain... The sort of pain that's only suffering.
    source: House of Cards (American TV drama)



    Do you think it is wrong if I replace "sort" with "kind" in above context?

    Thank you!
