Abstract

Risk-taking behavior refers to any kind of behaviors that put adolescents in a risky condition involving ethical, financial, health/safety, social, and recreational (Blais & Weber, 2006). The involvement of adolescents in risky behaviors can be influenced by personality factor, such as sensation-seeking, that is the adolescent’s need to seek for different, new, and complex sensations and experiences and willing to accept any risks to get such sensation (Zuckerman, 2007). The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between sensation seeking and risk-taking behavior among late adolescents in Universitas Surabaya. Participants in this study were male students of Universitas Surabaya aged 18-21 years (N=100). The result showed that there was positive correlation between sensation seeking and risk-taking behavior (r= .531, sig. < .01)among late adolescents in Universitas Surabaya.
