When a Risker wins big, it becomes like a drug, urging them to reach for more unusual, more daring and more exciting opportunities to get the rush they’re looking for. When they lose, the resulting unhappiness could lead them to take even crazier risks in search of the next big win.
When a Risker harnesses their financial bravery while maintaining an eagle-eye on whether they’re using their head or their heart in a deal, they have the potential to be abundant wealth creators. By looking into their emotional state at the time of a financial decision, they could assess whether they are chasing the rush or making a level-headed, sound choice.
Riskers are capable of losing all but the clothes on their backs through one unfortunate twist of fate. This kind of frenetic behaviour makes them unreliable when it comes to things like regular payments and “adulting”.
For those with minor risk taking behaviour, they may want to identify what, or who, are the triggers of their risky behaviour. This can help them develop a structure, using boundaries for their identified triggers and enablers, that prevents the patterns from unfolding. An example of this is to set up debit orders to override the temptations to spend their available cash on a risky deal. For individuals who are compulsive spenders and risk takers, it is recommended that they seek professional treatment.
