So, how would you describe yourself? Are you a adventuresome of a person, or you would rather play safe on everything? I think I am less adventurous in compare to my friends and my cousins. I would rather do everything safe, because I need the feeling of security. An adventure would mean 50% of risk taking, and 50% of fun and excitement. I would like to have all these without taking too much risk. That just me. Sometimes, I thought to myself though, too much safe really boring, so maybe taking an adventure would be much more fun. So, what are you?

I am an absolutely prudential person, and never put myself in any dangerous conditions. My cautiousness seems a bit excess. I can't set my heart down until the thing is completely succeed, and always prepare everything again and again. When choosing my college, I applied a relatively low one because I have 100% certainty to be matriculated. If I was more adventurous then, maybe I could go to a better one...

Can't say you are wrong, at times it is also good to be prudent because then you have backup. I would say, risk only what you can afford. If you are not accepted into the better university, would you have to wait another year?

Well, extra care should not be a problem. Some people rather play safe, and I would go with that too.

anyways, a risk-free life wasn't much of a life, really, so if you are planning to change, you might as well start now..

I am sort of inbetween. I do not mind a little risk, but I also do not want to be competely safe. I have to have something behind me just in case something goes wrong. I will try out new things, but only after I find that I can afford them. I do not want to go on an adventure, for instance, and find I have to work really job to make up for the money I lost being on that adventure.

I like to be an adventuresome person. Playing it safe can be boring and mundane. Live life to the fullest to enjoy it.

I don't play safe. I desire for adventure. I love taking risks with everything. As they say Life is a risk. We just have to deal with the risks and consequences in taking such actions.

I am 50% in a play safe side because I want to make sure that things are all right and I just prevent mistakes specially in serious matters though I know that it is impossible. Of course the other half is being an adventuresome person. Because I also want to explore things. Actually, there are times that I would do it first before to know the results personally.

I am a person who is somewhere in the middle. There are many days where it is just absolutely necessary that I live a rather safe life. I mean, there is no need to take risks most days. Life itself can be hectic enough normally without going outside of the box. In many ways, life is not devoid of excitement and there is no need to shake things up. At the same time, there are times where I am feeling a bit daring. Then I get creative with things that I do. Very daring, taking a bit of a risk at times. The results tend to vary. Still, one thing that is for true is that things are really shaken up and life is very different. It is all about living life to its fullest and in the end, there might be times where a risks need to be taken. They should be chosen wisely, however.

I'm generally quite adventurous but mostly it depends on my threshold for a particular area. I think I'm adventurous when I feel that I can afford losing, when I'm mentally prepared that I might lose and it doesn't hurt much. I'm more prepared to lose material things because I think I can always earn it back. But I would not risk harm to my body or health, or to love or friendshp because these are the things that are not easily regained once lost.
