Risk seeking: 

A risk seeker is a decision maker who is concerned in the best likely outcome no matter how small the chance that they might take place i.e. he takes high risks in anticipation of high profitability. For such decision maker, the marginal usefulness for wealth is positive and rising.

Risk neutral:

A decision maker is risk neutral when he is concerned with what will be the most probable outcome i.e. he is unconcerned to risk.  For such a decision maker the marginal usefulness of wealth is steady and positive.

Risk Averse:

A decision maker is risk reluctant, when he acts on the supposition that the worst possible outcome will take place, and selects the decision with the least risk possible. For such decision maker, the marginal usefulness of wealth is positive though reducing.

These risk attitudes can be described by:

(i) Risk neutral seeking
(ii) Risk averse
(iii) Risk seeking
