    Hi all,

    I recently came across the concept of Risk Intelligence and was wondering what people thought about it? The concept itself doesn't appear to be widespread at all -- it's not really mentioned in any behavioral science text books (or none that I know of anyway) nor is there a elaborate entry on wikipedia. I did find one site site (www.projectionpoint.com) that offers a "RQ Test". I'm a bit skeptical about the concept as the border between a general knowledge test seems quite close.

    Anyway, I was hoping to get some more feedback / links / resources on the topic of RQ. Any thoughts?

    Happy holidays,

    Did you mean risk assessment?

    EDIT: I'm sorry, that link is very business oriented. :|

    No, I mean Risk Intelligence (RQ). That is, a way of measuring how good somebody is at dealing with risk (or as projectionpoint puts it: "easure of a personís ability to estimate probabilities accurately"). Essentially like IQ, just...for risk. IQ doesn't take into account one's ability to quantify one's own uncertainty.

    Upon second thought, the idea behind RQ is really starting to grow on me. It give give a good explanation as to why people with high IQ are sometimes very bad at dealing with uncertainty. Can't find empirical evidence on the topic though...
