Abstract

The article presents the study on psychological resources and factors of adventurousness as a stable personal trait. At the present stage of the study, we argue that disposition to self-change can become an adventurousness resource. The indicators of disposition to self-changes (self-changeability) and adventurousness are interrelated, and the fervent wish for self-changes can support, and even provoke, manifestations of adventurousness. We can assume that the tendency to self-change is not only a predictor, a source of adventurousness, but also its psychological resource, the quality that optimizes certain activities (for example, adventurous ones), increases their effectiveness as well as psychological personal potential and skills and supports them from inside. The concept of adventurousness (disposition to adventurous behaviour) and disposition to self-changes are discussed.

The original psychological diagnostic method “Adventure Tendency Questionnaire” (AVANT-1) and the Self-Change Tendency Questionnaire were used at the performed empirical study. Statistical data processing was done with SPSS 21.0 for Windows. Quantitative (correlative) and qualitative (ace method and profile method) data analyzes were used. Significant correlations were determined between adventurousness and the self-change tendency. The psychological characteristics of adventurous persons with high and low tendencies to self-change are descriptive. Comparison of the adventurous features of persons with different forces of the desire to change themselves shows that the thirst for luck, easy and fast success in the presence of an ultimate goal without taking into account an individual’s own capabilities and ways of problem solving are more characteristic for people inclined to self-changes. The article proves that the disposition to self-change influences manifestations of adventurousness, determines its specificity, and thus, become a resource function in relation to this phenomenon.
