    I'm a 7w8 sp/sx. I do quite a lot of things that may be seen as risky ( am an adrenaline junkie), but my aim is to challenge myself, face my fears, and come out the other side, better/more enlightened for it. And if I get a rush, that's just deliciously added bonus. To be brave, not to be stupid."

    In this regard, I get highly irritated and frustrated by others taking, what I consider, stupid risks just to show that they can. Going on a walk, in the park, at 2am, in a shady part of town, is stupid. Is it risky? Hell yes. Is it brave? Hell no. Because it is utterly idiotic to do so. And idiots are not brave, they're just too stupid to know better.

    See now this is actually making me think that my friend may very well be a 7w8. So you take risk but not unnecessary risk just for the hell of it?

    Risk is attached to a reward. "For the hell of it" is not a reward. It basically equates to risk = risk. No payoff, but an added variable introduced, potential for harm. That's incredibly short-sighted and stupid. So, no.

    Btw, your thread title is grammatically incorrect.

    But do you actually enjoy taking the risk?

    Yea I do. That would be a tougher one to pick out. The 1 and 7 would clash and they would probably flip flop from one to the other. 1s tend to have this daddy supervisor approach so look for that and signs of being a critic/perfectionist.

    If you want to know if he is a 7w8 don't look at the risky stuff. That isn't how I would define being a 7w8. Just make sure he is a 7 first look for 7 qualities.

    He is either a core 7 or a core 3. He seems to feel fairly confident that he's a core 7 though. How would you diagnose the 6 or 7 wing though?

    Scenario: cliff diving. Let's say I've done it before because the the reward of the adrenaline rush was amazing. Then, another opportunity presents itself to do it again. However, this time, my mental faculties were compromised (inebriated and high as a motherfucking kite). My adrenaline rush will not be pure, which is my reward of the whole experience. Thus, I will not jump, whereas others would say that it would make me more prone to making risky decisions, but if I am not in complete control, feel confident in my stone cold sobriety, I will shy away from risks. Because I do not trust my decision-making nor my ability to get the intended outcome out of the situation, and as such, I will refuse to engage in decision-making in favour of potential for high risks, during these times. Self preserving - in essence.

    I'm more calculating in my carefree (ness), unlike a 7w6.

    The above may or may not be based on a real scenario.

    So I'm seeing that sp 7w8's tend to weigh pros and cons a a lot.

    So in other words, you would almost be like James Bond for instance. You would be the type to go on dangerous missions if they would offer you a lot of money, and if they would provide a good adrenaline rush. However, you wouldn't be the type just to go to a blood neighborhood and wear all blue, just to see if you don't get killed, because their is no final reward for this, and it is just taking risk for no reason?

    Also, just like I asked the other guy, "Do you just automatically think things will go right like most 7w8's"? I mean the self pres variant says to a person, "Hey I don't want to get hurt, and I want to be safe". However, what goes on in your 7w8 head that even let's you know that you could possibly get hurt? I mean, it seems to me like most of the 7w8's that I have met don't even consider the possibility of danger before making a crazy decision? Please describe to me how this works.

    when you set it up like that, of course, one would choose the wangster idiot over being likened to Bond, James Bond.
