Exploring Sensation Seeking Behaviour among Adolescents in Tamilnadu

J. Kamini | R. Renisha Jerine [2]

Abstract: Sensation seeking is the tendency to obtain new and different sensations, feelings, and experiences. Sensation seeking is a personality trait characterized by a desire for novel, intense, and diverse experiences. This study examines sensation seeking behaviour among adolescents in Tamil Nadu, specifically focusing on gender differences. The sample comprised of 75 adolescents 38 males and 37 females, and ?The Sensation Seeking Scale (SSS-V)? was used for collecting data. It consists of 40 forced-choice questions to assess individual differences in optimal level of stimulation. The results indicate no significant difference between males and females in sensation seeking behaviour, suggesting equal involvement in risk-taking activities. The findings contribute to understanding the role of gender in sensation seeking among adolescents.
