1. Do you consider yourself a sensation seeker? Why or why not? What are the advantages and disadvantages of your level of sensation seeking? No I don’t consider myself to be a high sensation seeker. Most sensation seekers in my opinion like a good bit of danger and a whole lot of challenge. I don’t mind a challenge but when there is a higher risk of danger I am more than likely to avoid the situation. I wouldn’t dare go mountain climbing, jumping from anything high in the air just for recreation and as a child I wasn’t attracted to climbing in high trees.

I think I would rate my own achievement motivation at a little above average. When I was much younger I had a higher achievement of motivation for success in school.

I have to admit toward the end I got tired and a bit frustrated. I believe if I had a higher achievement of motivation level like I had when I was younger I would have definitely maintained the 4.0 GPA. I don’t see this as a great disadvantage, why stress out endeavoring to be perfect all the time? I did pretty well and I’m quite proud of that. 3. What did you learn
