Studying Sensation Seeking and
Criminality Cross-culturally

by Leona Lee

[March 28, 2008]
 

 

This study looks at sensation seeking and criminal propensities in the United States, England and Hong Kong. A preliminary study using a sample from the United States found sensation seeking and criminal propensities to be strongly linked, especially among males. If male sensation seekers in the United States are attracted to criminal behavior, is that true among people from other cultures? The present study will test the United States model using samples from England and Hong Kong.
