This is quite interesting. I think I definitely have that personality type and really enjoy being scared! Thanks Dr. Komaroff!

I read Dr. Komaroff’s and found it very interesting but some how, using myself as an example I just cannot see why someone can have joy in being scared. I took note of the type of personality the he says like being scared (Type T). I would like to see some more scientific conclusions. However I found I did enjoy reading his article.
