risk tolerant
more willing to take on risk.

What does standard devieation indicate?
the likelihood that an outcome different from what's expected will occur.

standard deviation
a numerical indicator of how widely dispersed the possible values are around a mean.
more dispersed = higher std. dev. = more risk

Expected Value (Mean) Equation
mu = Sum(V x P)

Standard Deviation Formula
sigma = SQRT[Sum P(V  mu)^{2}]
