Speaker Marvin Zuckerman is a professor at the University of Delaware in the psychology department. Zuckerman is known for developing a concept known as sensation seeking. Sensation seeking is a quality that some people possess, which drives them to seek out exciting and novel experiences to feel complex and intense emotions.
Zuckerman has given speeches on the idea of sensation seeking, as well as creative thinking. Zuckerman has also made some interesting claims that scientists and criminals fall under the category of sensation seekers. To discover which people are and aren't sensation seekers, Zuckerman created a personality test.
Zuckerman is the author of over 200 published articles as well as written book chapters.
