Abstract

Theory and common correlates suggest a relationship between dimensions of personality measured by the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ) and the Sensation‐seeking Scale. In order to examine these relationships, the two tests were given to 219 American and 879 English subjects of both sexes. Sensation‐seeking was positively correlated with the traits of extraversion and psychoticism as measured by the EPQ. There was no relationship between sensation‐seeking and the trait dimension of neuroticism.
