Take This Risk Tolerance Quiz

January 28, 2007

Here’s your assignment for today:

Take this risk tolerance quiz and report back here with your score. NOTE: If the website doesn’t load the first time, try again.

I scored and 87 which doesn’t surprise me at all. An 87 puts me in “Above-Average Risk Tolerance” category:

Individuals scoring in the upper end of this range have significantly greater tolerance than those at the lower end, but people in both situations should put stocks and stock funds at the core of their portfolios.

  1. I scored a 75, so that puts me in the above-average risk tolerance category, too–but just barely.

    I did not like the last question about investment philosophy. I’m an indexer, and none of the answers really fit me.

  2. 89 – about what I’d expect.

    Several of the questions had no answer that matched my outlook, so I had to go with the closest match.

  3. Yeah, you both raised an important point: none of these questionniares are perfect and the results should be taken lightly.

  4. I scored a 61, but I don’t think the test questions were always relevant. For instance #14, I would have no problem betting $10,000 for a $50,000 payoff as $10,000 is a minor amount in my portfolio. I would have been more conservative if the choice was to invest $500,000.

  5. I scored 57 as expected that I’m an average risk tolerance person and I think those questions are reasonable.

  6. 55 here, which surprised me a little. I’d have thought I’d come out more conservative.

  7. I scored a 79, pretty much where I expected.

  8. 56, pretty much as I expected. It’s probably one of the more accurate “little” (less than 5 pages long) surveys I’ve seen.

  9. Scored an 89, which seems about right. I’m generally probably happy to take on risk if the reward is right.

  10. Mine was 78, above-average risk tolerance. Surprising because I consider myself very risk adverse.

  11. 71…which might have been higher except I am relatively new to detailed PF.

  12. 66; I might try to follow the “110-age” rule for moderate investors.

  13. I scored 80. I’m not terribly surprised.

  14. Well my score was 78 “Above-Average Risk Tolerance”

  15. 78, right where I expected to be.

  16. I got an 87 also. Just like everyone else, it fits.

  17. I got a 57

  18. I got 61 point.It was pretty much close on my mind.

  19. I scored 60, it is fairly accurate for me considering the amount of fund available to me right now, but I think I will be willing to take much more risks if I earned the money myself.
