This seems like an actually useful quiz!

Based on that, I found out that I have a fairly high risk capacity (33) but a moderate risk tolerance (24).

For someone like me, the risk tolerance sounds about right. I've noticed that I'm starting to be a bit more conservative as time goes by. Again, it's most likely because I'm anticipating to lose my current job soon, but I think it's also because I'm starting to get older.

Now, risk capacity is what I'm slightly concerned about. However, the suggested asset allocation is 80% equities, 20% fixed income, and this is what I would have if I had went all-in on my stock trades anyways. Otherwise, I would be in more % cash.

Here's a quick explanation of the difference between

    I'm moderate for both, with capacity at 29 and tolerance at 32. Their recommendation is that I should consider a more modest investment strategy, with the bulk in short to medium term bonds, 12-13% in large cap, 9% in small cap, and 5-6% in international. Interesting stuff!
