Morgan, Cass
Journal of Experiential Education, v31 n3 p431-434 Mar 2009
This study examined the relationship between the sensation-seeking personality trait to changes in perceived risk and perceived competence during an adventure experience. Participants (n = 57) were enrolled in a 14-week introductory scuba diving course offered at a university in eastern North Carolina in 2006. The data was analyzed using a repeated measures analysis of variance; a post-hoc test was conducted to assess a main effect. Supporting literature and findings from this study are discussed.
