Score 2-7: If you scored this, especially if your score is in the following numbers, then you find the world a very frightening place. You would probably like to do a lot of things, but are afraid of. It's quite normal to be afraid of doing something new. But it would be good for you if sometimes you did things even though you felt afraid. If you decided to start a business of your own it would be better for you to have partners who you can rely upon.

Score 8-14: A score like this means that you've got about the right amount of adventurousness, but you're still sensible - which is good. Keep that sensible head you've got - that'll help you in taking important decisions.

Score 15-19: This is great, but you're in danger of taking too many risks. In a lot of ways you're a very powerful person, with lots of energy. You'll do almost anything, often without thinking. You've got great potential, but don't get yourself into trouble. If you really use your energy sensibly, you'll succeed in everything.
