Everyday non-productive motor behaviours : occurrence and correltation with sensation seeking (English)
Abstract [en]

In everyday life we perform motor behaviours that have no apparent instrumental function. Are these correlated to sensation seeking and do they differ depending on what situations we are in? University students in Örebro (N=108), participated in the study. The participants were asked to fill out a double questionnaire containing the sensation seeking scale and another one for measuring non-productive motor behaviours. The non-productive motor behaviours were not correlated to the sensation seeking scale. The behaviours where reported in a way that suggest that they are more than just random occurrences. We tend to perform more of these behaviours if we need to make an effort to stay concentrated.

Abstract [sv]

Vi utför i vårt vardagliga liv motoriska beteenden som inte har någon uppenbar instrumentell funktion. Är dessa korrelerade till sensation seeking och skiljer de sig beroende på i vilken situation vi är i? Universitetsstudenter i Örebro (N=108) deltog i studien. Deltagarna ombads att fylla i ett dubbelt frågeformulär innehållande sensation seeking skalan samt ytterligare ett formulär för att mäta icke-produktiva motoriska beteenden. De icke-produktiva beteendena visade sig inte vara korrelerade till sensation seeking. Beteendena rapporterades på ett sätt som tyder på att de är mer än slumpmässiga företeelser. Vi tenderar att utföra fler av dessa beteende ju mer vi behöver anstränga oss för att koncentrera oss.
