On the construct validity of the sensation seeking scale in a non-english-speaking culture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to examine the structure validity of Zuckerman's Sensation Seeking Scale in a non-English-speaking culture. A nonmetric multidimensional scaling technique (SSA) was employed for analyzing the responses of 272 Israeli male applicants for a job for which sensation seeking was of special relevance. The general findings replicated the structure postulated by Zuckerman. Only 1 in 8 of the items were mislocated, all of which were indicated as inappropriate in previous factor-analytic studies conducted in other nations.
