So What Is Your Betting Personality?

Jun 12, 2008
While you may never have spent any time pondering the matter, there are some distinct and very interesting differences in betting personalities. You might find it a little entertaining to read about other betting personalities and compare other people's habits to your own just for a laugh.

The Waffler

This betting person is one of the most amusing to watch at work. No matter whether the venue is sports, entertainment or politics, this bettor has a hard time making a choice before placing their bet. In their non-betting life these people are big pro-and-con list makers. They like to consider all the pertinent information on both sides of the matter before taking any step in any direction. They are known for revisiting issues again and again in case they have missed any obvious pieces of information in their evaluations. In their love life wafflers are usually not the first to spill those three little words.

They prefer to allow their partner to profess their love first because they would never risk putting that out there without proper time to consider both sides of this equation for what seems like an eternity to their significant other.

Wafflers in betting may not admit it, but they often miss out on opportunities for the simple reason that their decision making process is often still going on even after the event (job offer, relationship, or big sale) has ended and been forgotten by everyone else.

The Leaper

This type of person is usually high energy. If they see something as an opportunity, they are all over it right away. They leap on a chance in less time than it takes most people to even finish hearing the offer. In betting, these people place bets quickly and with what appears as absolutely no forethought whatsoever. They know their mind at all times and in betting they can leap on something without delay because of this.

Leapers go with their gut. They check with the gut and assess exactly it is saying to them with such speed that the rest of us believe they put no thought into their actions. Lightening fast response is what they are all about. Most people operate at a much slower rate than leapers do and often accomplish much less in a day.

In love, leapers are often planning the wedding before their partner even realizes they are a target.

The Keeper of the Luck

This betting person is very superstitious. Their odd thinking patterns make little sense to others but are written in stone for them and cannot be compromised at all. They can't place a bet without having their lucky rock in their left hand jacket pocket and wearing their lucky hat. If the conditions are not just so, they would rather not do any betting at all than to risk doing it without luck on their side.

In their love life, these people must overcome so much more than the rest of us. They must keep a constant eye on the heavens, their horoscope, their lucky rock and any cracks in the pavement so that they don't make any wrong moves. These people often have the distinct feeling that other people are laughing at them and they are never sure exactly why.

No matter what kind of betting person you are, you are not alone. You are in a category of people that others find as amusing as you find them. No matter. Betting is just one more way to express your personality and style with which you embrace this world. Have some fun and don't worry too much about it - unless you fall into the category of 'worrier' that is.
