IN fact, we have two types of minds, one is related to thinking and the other with feeling. These two different ways of knowing make our mental life in a mutual interaction. The self-centered mind is the same of under-standing and comprehension by which we can think and speculate.
However, there is another system for knowing along with that system; that is, an impulsive, powerful and sometimes irrational system or emotional mind. Accordingly, emotional intelligence can be defined as:
“The ability to consider one’s own feelings and emotions, making distinguished between them and using the information resulted from in one’s own thinking and actions”. Thus, emotional intelligence is an important collection of a series of capabilities: such abilities as the person be able to maintain his motivation and resist against difficulties, postpone his impulsivities and control them, adjust his own moods, do not let the confusion weaken the power of thinking, empathy with others and be hopeful (Akbarzade, 2004).
Personality is an abstract concept which involves actions, emotions, recognitions and motivations of a person. Despite having many common personality traits, humans have unique personality. The personality is remained constant in a long time; nevertheless, it is changed from one position to another one.
Measuring the personality and describing the personality traits has been paid attention by the psychologists from a long time ago. Identifying the people’s personality traits is necessary in many living situations.
The personality questionnaire is one of the methods for assessing the personality which is based on one’s own observation of oneself. In this way, the person reports his actions and feelings in certain conditions.
According to Zakerman, thrill-seeking is a feature that defined as the need to different, new and complex feel-ings and also different experiences and having enthu-siasm for accepting the social and physical risks of these experiences.
Zakerman made a questionnaire called it as “thrill-seeking scale”. Those who score high in this scale have high thrill-seeking and those who score low have low thrill-seeking or avoidant of thrilling.
Kerol and Zakerman showed in a research that people are so different in terms of the amount of thrill-seeking. Thrill-seeking is also a feature that has parallelism in different situations of life. In other words, those who are seeking new experiences in one of the territories of life are described as adventurous people in other facets of life (Hilgard and colleagues, 2006, translated by Baraheni and colleagues, 2007).
