Examined linkages between novelty seeking, as defined by C. Cloninger (1986), harm avoidance, and reward dependence dimensions and risky sexual behavior among 200 boys in treatment for substance abuse and delinquency compared to 200 boys recruited from the community. Analyses indicate that differences in personality failed to account for observed differences in risky sexual behavior. (SLD)
