You are open to taking more risk, immune to short term volatility in the market, and aim for significant growth. If you have a good understanding of the financial markets and focus on achieving higher returns, then you are an aggressive investor.
You wish to have a regular income stream but have less tolerance to unexpected short term downside risks associated with the investments having high returns. However, since you can accept minor ups and downs in your invested money, you are a moderate investor.
The thought of losing money worries you. You invest your money only in cash equivalent accounts like fixed deposits, CDs or government bonds. You feel sick if your monthly statement has a lower balance than in the previous month. If you are interested in a steady income rather than growth then you are a conservative investor.
