Last month I wrote about brain development and how we should encourage young people to take risks to help with their growth and future opportunities. I then came across this test. I found it interesting to see what type of risk taker I am (even if it wasn’t a surprise, as the older you get the more you understand where and when you will take risks). I also like the idea of this test being part of wider research. So if you want to find out what shapes your decisions, go ahead and take the test (allow at least 20 minutes).
Here are a couple of risk quotes which give you something to think about:
“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.”— T.S. Eliot
“The dangers of life are infinite, and among them is safety.”— Goethe
