A new inventory measuring sensation seeking was designed how a bio-behavioral expression of personality. The objectives of this research were analyze the psychometric properties (factorial structure, validity and reliability) of the new inventory for measure seeking sensations, assessment criterial validity and obtain normative standards in a sample of Mexican youths. The studied sample was formed by 550 teenagers between 14 and 23 years old, 260 males and 290 females, students of public high schools in Mexico City.
