    Default Can a 7w8 whom has strong self pres be fairly cautious and not take as many risks?

    I often times have difficulty telling the difference between a 7w8 whom has strong self pres, and a 7w6(sw8w7). So are all 7w8's huge risk takers despite variants? Say for instance if you have a 7w8 sx/sp with strong self pres, could this make that 7w8 much more cautious and not as much of a risk taker? I mean clearly that person most likely would not have that much anxiety, but it seems like that person may mistype as a 7w6 because they are actually a cautious 7w8 (which seems to be very hard to find). So can 7w8's be cautious?

    Yep that's me. I like taking big risks that would scare other people but it's more calculated than it looks.

    "Because of the emphasis on self preservation, the risks that Sevens are famous for will be more deliberate and calculated. They make look spontaneous and devil-may-care, but the weighing of risk and value is lurking in the background, like a banker going bungee jumping with a net. The risk must be taken because of the allure of the possibilities but there's no reason to be a darn fool about this."

    Maybe not so much cautious as calculating...having a good sense at when to jump and when to stay put?

    Mmm...what was said above!

    So basically a 7w8 with strong sp would still take risks but would be more likely to take calculated risks huh? I'm sure though that a 7w8 (self pres dom or not) would still believe that everything will turn out well in the end wouldn't they? I mean, that is the nature of the 7w8.

    Well that's part of the fun you don't really know for sure. Either way it will be entertaining.

    Does the thought of something going wrong even cross your mind, or do you just automatically assume things will go right

    Yea it does cross my mind. I don't assume anything. However the less risk there is the less I care. It's more about being comfortable in chaos.

    Yea I don't know chaos is just exciting to me. Things are alive and in motion everything is interesting. It's just my area. The opposite of that would be working in a 9-5 cubicle which would make me want to kill myself.
