Q: How do you rate your physical courage or daring?

A: I have a tendency to dare to do things just because I am afraid. I hope this is courage. For instance, when I used to do a lot of diving, I would force myself to dive from high places simply because I knew I was scared.

Do you believe in following sudden impulses?

Yes, I do, because I feel we often make mistakes when we deliberate too long. A little recklessness is good once in a while.
