The role of positive and negative emotions on high school students risk behaviors (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka positiva och negativa känslors inverkan på gymnasieungdomars sociala-, äventyrliga-, hälsomässiga- och etiska riskbeteenden. Syftet var även att undersöka könsskillnader i gymnasieungdomars positiva och negativa känslor samt riskbeteenden. Deltagarna gick på gymnasieskolor i Örebro län och var 18-21 år. Totalt medverkade 240 personer i studien. För att mäta riskbeteenden och känslor användes en enkät som bestod av två skalor. Resultatet visade att positiva och negativa känslor kombinerat förklarade 5 % av variansen i gymnasieungdomars riskbeteenden. Positiva respektive negativa känslor predicerade två typer av riskbeteenden vardera. Resultatet visade att killar sannolikt tar mer risker än tjejer i tre av fyra risktyper. Det fanns ingen könsskillnad i känslor. Sammanfattningsvis visade resultatet att känslor påverkar gymnasieungdomars riskbeteenden.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine whether positive and negative emotions affected high school students social, recreational, ethical and health risk behaviors. The goal was also to investigate gender differences in specific risk behaviors and positive and negative emotions. The participants were high school students in Örebro County, between 18 and 21 years old. In total there were 240 participants. To measure emotions and risk behaviors, we used a questionnaire consisting of two scales. The results showed that emotions explained 5 % of the variance in high school students risk behaviors. Positive and negative emotions predicted two types of risk behaviors each. The results showed that boys were more likely to take risks than girls in three out of four types of risks. There were no gender differences in emotions. In summary, the results showed that emotions play a role in high school students risk behaviors.
