Ah yes,I only noticed myself last week I had so much more games playing black than white.
I don't have a preference,it's all chess.And,at least at my level,it doesn't matter much anyway.
I don't study openings,too boring.I do dabble a bit with gambits and unorthodox openings but no serious study.
as all players I prefer to attack but when things go wrong I'll calmly defend best I can.I don't think I'm very good at it but I manage to remain calm and avoid panick which already helps a lot.
I think the black/white discrepancy is because most open invites on offer have them playing white.
