Lots of us admire those people who practice extreme sports, those who live their life according to one motto: carpe diem. Practicing extreme sports requires a special kind of bravery. While it might look irrational to some, as you can see in this infographic by Extreme Sports Land, there are psychological reasons behind the seeking of new thrilling, adrenaline pumping situations.
Extreme sports enthusiasts overcome their fears and achieve incredible goals.
