Risk seeking / Risk aversion scales

The scale

The Colquitt et al has the following (risk averse, page 118):

Risk aversion was also assessed using 6 items from the International Personality Item Pool (2001). Items included:

  1. I enjoy being reckless (R)
  2. I take risks (R)
  3. I seek danger (R)
  4. I seek adventure (R)
  5. I would never go hang-gliding or bungee jumping
  6. I would never make a high risk investment

Coefficient for this scale was .82.

I ran these from the IPIP (risk taking) (cite as: IPIP Risk-Taking scale (Goldberg, 1999, Jackson, 1994)) :

  1. I enjoy being reckless
  2. I take risks
  3. I seek danger
  4. I seek adventure
  5. I am willing to try anything once
  6. I would never make a high risk investment (R)
  7. I avoid dangerous situations (R)
  8. I do crazy things

I personally used a Likert scale from 1 (strongly disagree) to 7 (strongly agree).

recode risktaking_6 risktaking_7  (1=7) (2=6) (3=5) (4=4) (5=3) (6=2) (7=1) (ELSE=SYSMIS) into risktaking_6r risktaking_7r.
compute risktaking=mean(risktaking_1, risktaking_2, risktaking_3, risktaking_4, risktaking_5, risktaking_6r, risktaking_7r, risktaking_8).
EXECUTE.

RELIABILITY
  /VARIABLES=risktaking_1, risktaking_2, risktaking_3, risktaking_4, risktaking_5, risktaking_6r, risktaking_7r, risktaking_8
  /SCALE('Risk taking') ALL
  /MODEL=ALPHA.
