Sensation seeking is a personality trait. It is about risk taking for sensations. High-sensation seekers take more chances. A high sensation seeker will seek thrills and adventures. They will engage in activities like rock climbing or white-water rafting. These activities are sure to have their adrenalin flowing. High-sensation seekers will experiment with drugs. They're seeking an intense sensation. Sensation seeking is divided into four areas. Thrill and adventure seeking, experience seeking, disinhibition, and boredom susceptibility. Low-sensation seekers would be experience seekers. They're looking for stimulation through art and culture, and exotic foods. Their desire for sensation is low-keyed compared to high sensation seekers.
