I have two "Nap" types in appearance - very different from each other in temperament.

Germane to this discussion is her assessment of the Nap type, which she describes as "smooth coated, very fast and with abounding energy and power."  The photos all show prick-eared smoothies.

 

Yes, but the behavioral similarities could be -- and IMO mos likely are -- just as easily attributable to what Liz refers to when she's speaking of behavioral characteristics running in lines, rather than being linked to physical traits like coat length and ear set.
