If you knew you had only a 10% chance of being successful at something, would you still put in as much effort?

definitely, it would probably make me more keen
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/3/05 - 4:11:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Damn right I would! Still a chance!
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/4/05 - 1:47:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, of course I'de try
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/4/05 - 1:50:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Based on the results, it looks like men don't leap at the prospect of failure as readiliy as women do. A 10% chance is pretty weak odds.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/4/05 - 3:09:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I probably have higher chances now and I still don't try hard.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 6/7/05 - 11:44:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
u shoudl put effort into everything u do
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/8/05 - 6:39:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. I wouldn't put any effort at all then.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 6/24/05 - 3:29:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd still try..but there would be a good chance that I wouldn't try as hard as something I have a 50% chance of being successful with.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 6/24/05 - 3:34:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd probably put more effort in, hoping to increase the odds of success...
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 6/29/05 - 11:38:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
probably not. 10% odds just isn't very good.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 6/29/05 - 11:41:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
The 10% would probably be those who put the most effort into it, so yes.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 8/30/05 - 10:34:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
id try harder . duh.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/30/05 - 2:39:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
You could be the tenth person, so yes. Even if you don't succeed, you should still try. You're only a failure when you've made your mind up you will fail.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/30/05 - 2:48:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes to prove the odds wrong.
Duh.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/5/06 - 1:33:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
^^Agreed.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 5:52:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would put in even more effort.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 5:57:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I still would.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 6:15:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I am afraid not. I'd concentrate on what I have more of a chance in excelling in.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 6:22:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I still have a 1 in 10 chance of attaining it, so I would work to make it happen.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 6:23:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, the results would then be a lot more satisfying.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/18/06 - 7:15:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, i don't think so
