Abstract:   (7514 Views)
The present research aims to study reliability, validity and manner of Zuckerman sensation-seeking scale (SSS) particularly with changes of culture among the students of technical universities in Tehran, Therefore, 668 students (332 females and 336 males were randomly selected from five technical and engineering universities (Tehran University) Sharif University of Technology, Khajeh Nasir University, Amirkabir Technical University and, University of Technology) during the course of this research. The findings indicated that Zuckerman sensation-seeking scale can be employed as a simple and reliable scale in order to measure sensation. Furthermore, Zuckerman sensation-seeking scale was highly valided and reliable. The results obtained from analysis showed this scale consists of six factors i.e. sensation-seeking, experience-seeking, adventurism, annoyance- acceptance, variety-seeking and avoidance from deterrence. Moreover, there was no significant difference between male and female sensation-seeking. Whereas, the rate of sensation- seeking decreases with the increase in age. In order to explain that the result of this sensation-seeking culture based test is a standard collection which is consistent from one test to another and from one level to another, the crude numbers were changed into standard numbers. To do so, the percentage calculation norm was changed into T-number after one linear transformation.
