    I feel kind of in the middle. I prefer having some knowledge and preparation before jumping in, but I am also adventurous and exploratory as a general rule. I try to avoid the low-gain risks and capitalize on the risks that either protect my values or are likely to lead to a breathtaking experience (standing up to mistreatment at work being an example of the former; learning and going scuba diving on the fly one day being an example of the latter - and sex without a partner's clean bill of health being a risk I just don't feel is worth taking).

    Hell, this absolutely makes sense to me. Risk-seeking may be seen as 'lacking judgment' by the risk-averse, who may in turn be seen as 'too controlled' by the risk-seekers.

    It makes common-sense. The interesting part is how this correlates with Jungian functions.

    I'm a fan of bringing common sense to conscious light as a reminder. But I do find the correlation with Pe/Pi-dominance to be a neat idea.

    In your mind, would Ji/Je-doms (who are thus Pe/Pi secondaries) exhibit similar tendencies as their Pe/Pi-dom brethren? How does the function stacking affect risk-seeking/aversion--would having Px in a secondary position lessen the degree to which those tendencies exist?

    I'm probably growing old, I am not the famous ENTP risk taker that my surrounding used to know

    The more I grow old the wiser I become : I try to think before acting to avoid losing my energy with the wrong persons for example...

    And I tend to develop my intuition more and more...


    I used to take many risks in relationships as well as for/in my jobs.

    Psychologically I am quite grounded so I don't need them to feel alright with myself.



    I am a risk taker for others because I don't give a damn about rules, because a good rule is one which is truly necessary...etc.


    Physically speaking, for some women, I am a risk taker : I am rather outgoing, and always very curious.
    But what they forgot is that if I think "I'm not going out alone at 3 o'clock alone" I don't feel free anymore.
    So I'm a risk walker


    Life is a risk in itself, and the pleasure to be alive is probably to feel good without too much worry.

    I'd like to be a risk taker with emotions, but I still have to work on them.
    I'm not usually lazy, but on this subject.... oh god !

    I control risk.

    No profit can be acquired without taking some degree of risk hence risk taking is paramount if you wanna make shitload of money...On the other hand, overleverage can make your net worth crash and burn quickly hence a certain balance must be struck between profit chasing and loss avoidance in order to build long term wealth...

    In general, if the Expected Value of a certain risky action X is positive, I would then take the risk and pull the trigger. Otherwise if the Expected Value is zero or negative, I'm not going to bother....

    I'm not gonna have precise expected value numbers for all scenario, but it's easy to intuitively make an educated guess/to quickly estimate the expected value of most scenarios I encounter....

    I am probably too risky. In all things. It may catch up to me.

    However, they're calculated, and I must not be a moron, because even though I'm proficient in about 15 extreme sports, I've never broken a bone. I lied, my pinkie toe once walking barefoot to the mailbox.

    But as @ExNinjaTropPervertie said, as I've gotten a little older, for BIG decisions (moving, career, women, etc.), sometimes I'm almost paralyzed to make a choice. It doesn't last long, but your "do-overs" get less and less.

    Ha, shun away. But it wouldn't be called "risk" if you could control it.
