Abstract:

High sensation seekers are not only more prone to experimenting with risky health behaviors, but may also be especially competent at forming social relationships and at social interaction. This study used a survey design (N = 444) to examine the likelihood of social initiative, motivation to communicate with culturally different others and intercultural friendships moderating the relationship between sensation seeking and risk-taking behaviors. The results of the study showed that sensation seeking is positively related to all risk-taking behaviors. Social initiative, motivation, and intercultural friendship do not moderate the relationship between sensation seeking and risk-taking behaviors. However, results do reveal that social initiative is inversely related to delinquency; motivation is inversely related to alcohol consumption, drinking and driving, fighting, delinquency, and drugs; and intercultural friendship is inversely related to alcohol consumption.
