    If she hasn't actually tested an electric fence, she's done better than some of us

    We eat chaos, digest stress and crap out cash.

    It's quite the opposite for me. I am into physical thrills, but emotional risk-taking is too much of a challenge. I've been skydiving multiple times, but I try to avoid emotionally dangerous situations. I'm an INTJ though.

    Bolded is the optimum word. No calc, no go. No offsetting hedge, once again, no go.

    As people above have stated, I take calculated risks. I love the way thrill seeking makes me feel -- any sort of challenge whether it is mental or physical. But only if I can still somewhat control my surroundings while doing such.
