État émotionnel subjectif et prise de risques : rôle de l’anxiété et de la fatigue psychologique

Abstract : Risk taking in scuba diving can be a pathological behavior, or a result of an ill-adapted decision-making process. Psychological tiredness, or perceived stress are emotional phenomena, known to modulate or to bias cognitive processing. They are considered as promoting factors for risk taking. The aim of our research is to identify factors that can influence risk taking and determine which of them are factors of risk. A quantitative method was used. Ninety-four subjects were characterized by psychological tiredness, and perceived personal and professional stress. We measured risk taking with a Risk Visual analog scale and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. Results point out that psychological tiredness enhances the “invincibility” factor of risk taking, and the anxiety-state. Moreover, psychological tiredness is a factor promoting risk taking. It can induce a cognitive bias in subjective emotions, leading to decisions concerning risk taking behavior which are incongruent with the current emotional state.
