low vs high sensation seekers

Recommended Posts

We are wired to fight to survive. To be aware of predators, conflicts and hidden dangers. That death lures around the corner.

If you take all that away, and give a person a secure, comfortable life, the brain is missing something. The danger. So it seeks it.

It's basic psychology.

Not necessarily. Some have a low response. Some people just enjoy it. Some people with a high response don’t enjoy it...and everything in between. But it’s the dopamine (and even adrenaline and cortisol) that drives essentially all of this.

There isn’t one simple answer in the way the OP suggests. 

My reply was overly snarky.
