Sensation Seekers

I was very intrigued by the sensation seeker scale and I was curious to see what my results would be. I didn't really consider myself as much of a sensation seeker but I've also never really thought about it before. After the quiz my results told me my total sensation seeking score is 20 out of 40. When it comes to thrill and adventure I scored a 6 out of 10. This means I have some desires about engaging in sports or activities that involve some physical danger like scuba diving and parachute jumping. I scored 5 out of 10 for experience seeking. This describes the desire to seek new experiences through the mind by living a nonconforming life style with unconventional friends and through travel. I scored a 6 out of 10 for disinhibition and a 3 out of 10 for boredom susceptibility. It says that these scores will peak during the late teens and early twenties so it seems my inner sensation seeker is at its peak. It also said that people with similar scores seem to be more romantically compatible with each other. I thought that was pretty interesting so I had my boyfriend complete the scale as well. He scored a 22 out of 40, just 2 points different from my score.
Overall, I enjoyed taking a few minutes to complete the survey and I thought the results were very interesting.
