. Do you consider yourself a sensation seeker? YES IM A SENSATION SEEKER BECAUSE I LOVE TRAVELING, I JUST LIKE TO TRY NEW THINGS THAT I NEVER DONE BEFORE. I ALWAYS SEE LIFE IS TO SHORT SO I ALWAYS LIVE MY LIFE TO THE FULLEST SINCE I WAS YOUNG AND SAW MY BROTHER PASSING AWAY AND HOW HE WAS WHEN HE WAS ALIVE. I NEVER SAW LIFE CAN BE CUT SHORT AND ALL THE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO YOU WONT BE ABLE TO DO. MY BROTHER CHANGED MY LIFE AND HOW I THING NOW BECAUSE HE WAS DISABLE AND COULDN'T TALK OR WORK OR ANYTHING AND HE WAS ALWAYS HAPPY AND WHEN I LOST HIM I TOLD MY SELF I NEED TO TRY THINGS THAT I NEVER TRIED BEFORE AND GO PLACES THAT I NEVER BEEN BEFORE.What are the advantages and disadvantages of your level of sensation seeking?SOME OF THE ADVANTAGES CAN BE I CAN EXPERIENCE AND ABLE TO EXPLORE THE PLACE AND ENJOY LIFE. I WOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE MY MOM TO THE PLACES AND EXPLORE IT WITH HER. AND I CAN EXPERIENCE THE THINGS THAT I NEVER HAD WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND SEE IF ITS TRUE WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING. DISADVANTAGES CAN BE I COULD GET HURT. I COULD LOSE MY LIFE AND IM RISKING EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE IN MY LIFE.

How would you rate your own achievement motivation? I CANT RATE MYSELF ON MY OWN ACHIEVEMENT MOTIVATION WHY BECAUSE I JUST GET THINGS DONE AND I DONT MESS AROUND WHEN IT COME TO SCHOOL. I SOMETIMES GET BEHIND BUT I DO CAUGHT UP. In what ways is this an advantage to you?

WELL IM JUST PUT MY SELF IN A SITUATION THAT I DONT LET MYSELF TO BE A FAILURE AND I DONT WANT TO SUFFER WHEN I GROW UP SO I JUST PUT MY MIND ON THINKING THAT AND I DO IT. In what ways is it a disadvantage? IF I LACK OF ON MY WORK AND SCHOOL AND BECOMING A FAILURE.What did you learn about yourself from reading about the trait theories of personality? A LOT AND NOW I KNOW THERES ALOT OF PERSONALITIES AND PEOPLE SHOULD GET HELP ON THAT. THE PEOPLE THAT DOESNT HAVE ANY DISORDER SHOULD NOT JUDGE THE PEOPLE THAT DOES. What did you learn about yourself from reading the other theories of personality?...
