Relative risk vs absolute risk

Last Update: October 27, 2019

Relative risk vs absolute risk

We all need to ponder, right?
And if we do, make a choice or the choice with lesser risks, right?

Sitting besides a tiger is risky
Unless you know the tiger...

and even then!

What is my point?

Our life is full of choices and many of those imply some risks.

Some examples

  • Loosing or quitting your job
  • Driving without license or drunk
  • Cheating on partners
  • Eating unhealthy
  • Gambling
  • Addiction
  • ...

Yes, you got it, those choices are toxic and risky.

Where does relative and absolute come in?

In the comparison and consequences...

Reward should be part of the equation. What level of reward would be associated with differing levels of risk? High risk, low reward - not for me. High risk, high reward ,- may be. Low risk, high reward - yes!

Not measuring effort, but level of risk.

You are right Fleeky, but I would prefer to choose calculated risk rather than lesser risk.

It's good to have understanding of this as we should learn to take care of ourselves specifically to real risk!

I tend to agree with Djohardi. I prefer calculated risks atleast you get an idea of what is probable and this way you might avoid some pitfalls.
