Risk Taking Or Cautious? What kind of person are you?

I am a very cautious person by nature. I mean I would think twice before investing money somewhere or calculate my risks before doing any job. I guess motherhood has made me like this because I was a very carefree and risk taking person before marriage and a kid. What about you do you calculate your risks or just go for it?

Hi Rintis, I'm a cautious person too, rather conservative when it comes to investing money and stuff like that. Somehow I'd still believe in keeping my money with the conventional institutions like banks; slow but safer - than trying it out with ventures, shares or others with higher payouts and also higher risks!

Both, because I am a person who uses common sense for some things, and just leaps for other things. It depends on the situation. I can be cautious sometimes, and I can be very risky sometimes.

It is good that you can balance between both.

Actually it depends a lot on my state of mind at that specific moment. There are times when i just go for it because am in a carefree state of mind. However there are certain times when am very scared to do something and i just can't make up my mind. But most of the times am all 'GO FOR IT' state of mind.

I understand your situation. Its really bad you have been cheated. Something like this makes us cautious and difficult to ever trust a person again.

I am cautious, I don't take to many risks, I think it's because I fear a lot of things like what my future may hold or something, but I do try to use common sense in deciding things.
