I ususally try to play it safe, but depending on the risk, I sometimes choose to be risky. XD

Very dependent, leaning towards no.
Most of the time I am simply not in face of high-risk decisions. When I am though, I look for the best solution, even if it seems riskier. That is when I take the dive.

It very much depends on the risk. If the odds are too much, I'll usually opt out, but I do take some risks.

Sometimes it is better to live in ignorance than to risk the unknown.
If there is a lack of Old Gods nearby, it is usually safer to take the risk.

If you can get a lot for some minor risk, or if you have at least, 50% of probabilities to get the prize, GO FOR IT!

The result of my life thus far is from all the risks I took! If I played it safe, I'd be with my 1st boyfriend, no kids, miserable and wondering who I am and what to do with my life. But I took some crazy risks and now I'm married to the last person I'd ever choose, 2 awesome kids, I travel the world, have a great life and I know who I am and where I'm going! RISKS, I will almost always take them!!!!!

T'sai Kung says, "He who lets an advantage slip will subsequently bring upon himself real disaster." You must seize the opportunities before you if you wish to avoid regrets- or worse. It is better to regret something you did, rather than something you did not do.

There are things worth the risk, and then there are things where your only excuse for being an idiot out to significantly ruin your life is "YOLO".

You were looking for a "yolo" comment, right?

As a somewhat nooby Dark Souls player, I've learned that the most succesful PVErs are always very cautious in general, always acting as if some boss will pop out of the floor at any moment. By keeping shields up, skipping boss fights unless they are overpowered for it if they can, and always bring along more experienced friends before daring to step into what looks like a new area. They then take up to 15 mins of circling, blocking, and healing in the fight itself while his phantom underlings try to do some damage, just to learn patterns and the thing's hit points.
A successful PvPer decides on his PvP build from the beginning, spends more time watching tutorials on PvPing than actually PvPing, and always attacks from unexpected times and places, making defense impossible.
Actually, come to think of it, this whole game is about deciding on whether to take the risk to get the reward or not. A lot of the boss fights are skippable, and the game, being open-world, allows the player to approach it in any way possible, but due to its sanity breaking difficulty when your not careful makes every single encounter you have control over a math test, with every single factor, your weapon, any enemies nearby, phantom's apparent skill brought into account to ensure victory and reward.
So, what do I do?

Well, if there is no risk, there is no reward. And my Thief, only 10 hours into the game, has accumulated over 95 deaths in his journey.


And he has one of the most powerful builds you can possibly have in early game.

Given my luck, if there a twenty-five percent risk, or higher, its best to avoid it. If I don't, it tends to result in a natural 1.

Generally I'll analyze if the risk is worth the reward. If the risk is worth it, say getting to live through a dangerous scenario, I'm willing to do it. If it's non life threatening and I get a lot of money, then I'll consider it. If I'm risking my life and all I'm going to get out of it is bragging rights, I'll just leave and say anyone that does try it is foolish.

As a competitive pokemon player I've learned to take the risks only when necesary or when they highly outweigh the gain of a safe play.

So... it depends, I suppose.

But play it safe for the most part.

Depends on the risk.

Some I definitely would take if it could end up being very beneficial in the end. Other risks are completely unnecessary.

I like to think that the "depends on the risk" option pretty much is "play it safe" until you know if the risk is worth taking, so remember kids always play it safe.

It depends on the consequences of taking the risk. There are always little risks in life you have to take even if you don't realize it because the consequences aren't all that big. The moment you have to jump off a metaphorical cliff or just turn away is when you have to take a second look at the situation.
