Silly Question - cut or burn

I've often heard cooks/chefs either regularly cut or burn themselves when cooking. I'm wondering which you are...

Despite the fact I cut off the tip of my right hand middle finger with my Japanese Benriner Mandolin (OWIE!), I appear to burn myself more often than not (although I have little sensitivity in my fingertips anymore - it freaks my daughter out when I touch or turn over super hot stuff while cooking)
