Novelty seeking personality trait

Common Name(s)

Novelty seeking personality trait

Human personality traits that can be reliably measured by rating scales show a considerable heritable component. One such instrument is the tridimensional personality questionnaire (TPQ), which was designed by {6:Cloninger et al. (1993)} to measure 4 distinct domains of temperament--novelty seeking, harm avoidance, reward dependence, and persistence--that are hypothesized to be based on distinct neurochemical and genetic substrates. Risk-taking is a characteristic of behaviors that occur under conditions of uncertainty and involves a tradeoff between beneficial versus detrimental outcomes, perceived or real. Risk-taking may or may not involve conscious evaluation of the probability and magnitude of possible outcomes ({1:Anokhin et al., 2009}). See also harm avoidance ({607834}) and pathologic gambling ({606349}), which may be related.
