18 Points. I would have gotten 13 if I put it on the craps table or a hot stock but I don't think that is a good use of risk but not understanding risk. Of course, I am in Risk Management so I am biased.

22 points - Moderately Aggressive - whatever that means!

I guess it means I would like to outpace inflation! Is it conservative not too? LOL!


P.S. I've never gambled in my life! Although I've walked through several casinos out of curiosity - casinos have convenient RV parks. My husband hates it when I do that! He feels obligated to walk through the casino with me (male protective instinct) but he can't stand the smoke or the noise and thinks they are super depressing.

15 points---very aggressive. Of course, in relation to my other assets, some of the quize choices which look aggresive to them, don;t look so aggressive as part of my overall picture.

Kind of dumb quiz, and I think not reflective of "real life".

23 points moderately aggressive. I don't gamble - cards, lottery, slots, etc. but I like Audrey1 guess I would like to outpace inflation.

21 points, "moderately agressive. "

"You drive in the middle lane on the investment highway because you're not keeping pace with the speed demons, though you're passing up the slowpokes. Somewhat aggressive, you don't mind taking some risks as long as they are offset by more stable investments."

I like the description better as I feel I'm a "moderate" (middle lane) investor..not trying to be agressive but not letting expenses or inflation eat my lunch.

22 here. Seems like I've taken similar tests and they always show me to be moderately agressive.

i'm a 22 caliber though i've never been and would never think of visiting las vegas. all i can hope for is that being moderately aggressive is better than being passive aggressive when it comes to my portfolio.
