Recently my dad was talking about how you can really get a glimpse of someone’s personality by watching them play the game 10,000. If you haven’t played, it’s a dice game where as long as you keep scoring points you can keep rolling, but if you ever roll and don’t score you lose whatever points you had built up that turn. So there’s an element of risk involved, and that’s where personality comes into play.

In almost every game I can think of one of the hallmarks of a good player is aggressiveness. In fact, I actually can’t think of a single game where being aggressive isn’t a good thing. Whether it’s pinochle, poker, backgammon, basketball, or anything else, aggression is generally the way to go. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to always keep the pedal to the metal; sometimes you have to back off a bit and slow down.
