QUIZ: What Kind Of A Risk-Taker Are You?

Will you even risk this quiz?

Caution Tape Picture Perfect Pose Picture Perfect Pose

WE ALL TAKE risks every day, in little and big ways, but some people are definitely more risk-taking by nature.

Whether that’s due to building some risk-taking muscle or just being born that way, no one knows. But what we do want to know is what kind of a risk-taker you are.

Take the quiz and find out – we double dare you.

1. You're at a friend's house for dinner, they offer you something you've never tried before. Do you:
Eat it out of politeness
Eat a little, say you had a big lunch

Feign a tummy bug
Go for it, ask for seconds
2. Your friend wants to set you up on a blind date. How do you feel about it?
The person must be OK if they're a friend's friend... I'll go for it
Might do but I need to find out more about this person

Sure. Love meeting new people
No way, Jose
3. There's a flash airline sale and you can buy tickets somewhere exotic really cheaply but they're selling out fast. Do you buy them?
Already bought
Em... why not? I have holidays to use up

Would have to check dates with work first. Might not get the time off
Oh, I'd love to but... I'd have to do some research first
4. You're running for a train and the doors start beeping to close. Do you:
Stop running, you'll never make it
Speed up

Keep running, start praying you'll make it
Yell out 'Hold the doors' and keep running
5. You're invited to a party where you won't know anyone. Do you go?
Yeah, I'll get chatting to someone no bother
I'll go if I can bring someone

I'll know the host, that's enough
No way
6. You made dinner a couple of days ago and there are leftovers still there. Do you:
Chuck it
Eat it, it's grand

Do the sniff test then decide it's not worth it
Heat it to within an inch of its life
7. Would you do a charity parachute jump?
Already done one. But I'd do another
No but I'll donate heavily to someone who does

Nope. No. No way. Never
If I raised enough money I could be persuaded
