An extreme form of low gain (extraversion) is sensation seeking. Sensation seekers want more of everything and tend to: use recreational drugs (e.g., marijuana, amphetamines), smoke more cigarettes, prefer more intense taste experiences, engage more often in physically risky activities (e.g., parachuting, motorcycling, scuba diving, fire fighting). (Ornstein, Robert, PhD. The Roots of the Self – Unraveling the Mystery of Who we Are. NY: HarperCollins Publishing, 1995, p 57)
