  1. We don't know why for sure, but his personality has something to do with it, I think. In his first chapter, The Lost Lord, he thinks to himself:

    "He was sick of hiding, sick of waiting, sick of caution. I do not have time enough for caution."

    Perhaps he didn't want to be cautious, which he should have been. They only worried about Tyrion because he had been in contact with the stone men, but JonCon hadn't. And since he was tired of being cautious, he didn't treat himself with the vinegar.

    I was under the impression that his quote from JonCon isn't about getting the greyscale, but it's his thoughts about the situation now that he has it. He doesn't want to wait and hide Aegon anymore, and doesn't have time to be cautios _because_ he now has greyscale. If he hadn't gotten the illness, then he might have been more careful with how they go forth with their plan of conquering Westeros, but now that he knows he's going to be a petrified Griffin soon, it doesn't really matter.
