    As always, thanks for the great perspective, Halla!

    Can you elaborate on this?

That and I just put up a huge barrier before entering something risky, especially emotional ones. I hope this will get better with age.
    I agree, this is really difficult. Something I am trying to get better at too!

    I didn't notice that. I am sp though, luckily enough. My biggest fear is choking on a chicken bone in a crowded restaurant. Every chicken meal a risk.

    I've had moments where I push myself to do something outside of my comfort level. But I'm not the type to just jump into the deep end... has to be in baby steps. When it comes to relationships, even though it may be totally against my self-protective/self-preserving nature, I find it is best to let a person know that you have feelings for them, rather than not saying anything at all. If the person doesn't like you in that way, then at least you won't be kicking yourself for not acting upon it. When you find the gumption to do something you dream of, even if you may not reach the moon, at least you will fall among the stars. I wouldn't say I'm the type that will do things that will cause me physical harm, but when it comes to an emotional or intellectual challenges, I'd rather take a risk to achieve my vision of the future, at the risk of being popular/trendy/ part of the in-crowd. Would like to achieve as many of my dreams as I can before I kick the bucket. Hell, even breathing and taking a step outside of your house is a risk... and trying to survive in this big world can be crazy, but you've got to keep going mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

    It's just that we get so little attention, we have to jump at the chance.

    I don't really take many risks at all. I should take more, though. no advice from me.

    I'm not sure if I'm sp but from the little I know about it, it seems likely.

    the most scary are social risks. risk of drawing attention/ridicule.

    Yah, some of us SPs are also sps, ya know?
