This paper investigates the relationship between antisocial behaviour and injury-related behaviour in a sample of young Norwegian males and females. The results indicated that antisocial behaviour was positively related to risk-seeking behaviour and negatively related to safety-seeking behaviour. The associations were similar for both genders. The findings suggest that the disproportionate level of injuries among antisocial and ‘delinquent’ adolescents, which are reported in numerous studies, may be accounted for by their high level of risk-seeking activity and low level of safety-seeking activity.
