Sensation Seeking and Trait Anxiety in Hang-Glider Pilots and Golfers
Sensation seeking and trait anxiety in hang-glider pilots and golfers were investigated using Zuckerman's Sensation Seeking Scale Form V (SSS Form V) and the trait portion of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory Form Y. A large scale mail survey was implemented. Hang-glider pilots (n = 170) scored significantly higher than golfers (n = 90) on each of the four subscales of the SSS Form V and Total Sensation Seeking. No significant difference in trait anxiety level between the two groups was found.
