Abstract

Background: The 40-item Sensation Seeking Scale V has outstanding reliability and validity indices. Under many circumstances, however, its applicability is restricted due to its time-consuming nature. Objectives: The objective of our study is to create a measure that besides preserving these good psychometric qualities, by means of a reduced number of items, is able to assess the general trait of sensation seeking in a more time effective way. Methods: Short versions of questionnaires measuring the dimension of sensation seeking, and the results of their studies were reviewed. Then psychometric characteristics of the short questionnaire, containing 9 statement-pairs, widely used in Hungarian practice were examined on four independent samples. Results: Analysis of data supports a shorter, 7-item version opposed to the original 9-item questionnaire. The 7-item questionnaire shows high reliability and its positive correlation with various high-risk behaviors indicates good validity of the scale. Conclusions: The 7-item Sensation Seeking Scale -Short Form (SSS-7-HU) is a reliable and valid measure of the sensation seeking personality trait.
