In my case maybe it would be a good idea to discuss my vision of possible risks and discuss which negative outcomes I am willing to accept responsibility for.
    What type of outcome would put you off... do you think you over state the outcomes...? See more fear than there needs to be in a decision?

    I'd agree that it would probably not be worth the risk, but then I may also try and find a way to figure out what was the difference between a new idea in a top grade (which is probably supported by a logical argument) and a zero grade (but thats just me)...

    So what time of trade off do you make before you take risk?

    Guys

    Do you think NT's need to get it right stops them taking risks because of fear of screwing up more so than other people? Does this mean they are doing stuff in their lives which they would rather not do?

    I wouldn't say that the fear of screwing up has kept me doing stuff in my life I would rather not do. But definitely from doing the stuff I would rather do. If things are just okay, I could waffle for decades.

    Yeah. I've learnt not to be scared of screwing up. Not in work yet but in my drama stuff. You need to take critisism and push yourself to give your best performance. Its hard but satisfying when you get somewhere.
    "I'd never die for my beliefs, I might be wrong"

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!
