Factors Influencing Adolescents' Decisions To Engage in Risk-Taking Behavior.
Rolison, Mary R.; Scherman, Avraham
Adolescence, v37 n147 p585-96 Fall 2002
In this study, 171 older adolescents completed a risk-taking inventory to measure risk involvement. Results showed that perceived risks affected risk-taking more significantly than did perceived benefits. Higher sensation seeking tendencies were affiliated with more risk-taking. Locus of control was not related to risk-taking. (Contains 38 references.) (GCP)
