Re: I need you help: Are young people more prone to risky behavior?
Younger people are less fearful of death than older people.... which makes sense considering they are generally further away from it.
Perhaps also though that this was always a very good thing tens of thousands of years ago -> younger people, the ones with more able bodies, were more courageous and thus were the ones hunting while the ones that were older, with more weakly bodies, did other tasks.
We can even relate this idea to the present.... the idea of "career death". Younger people are supposed to be more adventurous and take risks with their careers because they can and risk-tasking is often a catalyst for ingenuity -> younger people are less likely to have kids to take care of, less likely to own a home, etc.
