Report

Impulsive Sensation Seeking (ImpSS)

Measures low socialisation, and high psychoticism, impulsivity, and sensation-seeking. The impulsivity items assess lack of planfulness and a tendency to act without thinking. The sensation seeking items describe a liking for thrills and excitement, novelty and variety, and unpredictable situations and friends.

Neuroticism-Anxiety (N-Anx)

Measures anxiety, fear, general emotionality, psychasthenia, and inhibition of aggression. The factor is also associated with obsessive indecisiveness, lack of self-confidence, and sensitivity to criticism.

Aggression-Hostility (Agg-Host)

Measures aggression, hostility, anger, lack of inhibitory control, and low social desirability. The factor is associated with rudeness, thoughtless and antisocial behaviour, vengefulness, quick temper and impatience.

Sociability (Sy)

Measures affiliation, social participation, extraversion. Assesses liking for big parties and interactions with many people, as well as a dislike of isolation in sociable people versus a liking for the same in unsociable people.

Activity (Act)

Measures energetic behavior and persistence. This factor is associated with need to keep active and feelings of restlessness when there is nothing to do.
