Impulsiveness And Risk-taking Behaviour: A Comparative Study Among First Born & Second Born
First born and second born in a family grow differently with different behavior pattern. The present research is a study based on a comparative study between first born and second born children to identifying is there any correlation between impulsiveness and risk-taking behavior among them. If any relationship is found between these two variables further studies can be conducted to investigate whether impulsiveness is a causal factor leading to risk-taking behaviour. The sample size consists of totally, 120 child’s (60– first born, 60– second born), which were collected randomly from Trissur and districts. The present study is quantitative in nature. The tools used in the study were Risk orientation Questionnaire by Rohrmann in 1997 and Barrat Impulsiveness Scale by Ernest Barrat in 1995. For analysing the data standard statistical methods such as, t-test and Pearson correlation were used. The result of correlation shows that there is a significant relationship between impulsiveness and Risk-taking behaviour among first born and second born. On the basis of Pearson correlation, the result shows that there is a positive correlation has occurred in the two variables impulsiveness and risk-taking behaviour. If one increases the other also increases. That is when, impulsiveness increases risk-taking behaviour also increases. The first born show more Impulsiveness and risk-taking behaviour than the second born.
