Risk propensity, absent-mindedness and depression versus involvement in accidents

Ryszard Studenski
2012 Polish Psychological Bulletin  
Relations between individual traits and frequency of causing accidents have been analyzed. On the basis of results from 465 women and 277 men it has been found that the causing of accidents correlates with risk propensity and with risk taking influenced by self-destructive motivation. Persons often causing accidents are also absent minded to a greater degree, and experience depressive moods more frequently than persons rarely involved in accidents.
