Indeed, I am not suggesting that at all. Nor am I suggesting one shouldn't go with gut feel, hunch or whatever they choose. Indeed, by and large one should.
What I am suggesting is that as far as I can ascertain, more often than not, there is a huge gulf between actual risk (as far as can be determined) and an individual's perceived risk.
That's all. I could have put it more clearly from the outset.
I simply find attitude to risk very interesting. Particularly the tendency of an individual to condemn others who are prepared to accept risk which is beyond their threshold.
