Teens smoke, take drugs, have unprotected sex and ride with drunk drivers, not because they think they are invulnerable or haven’t thought about the risks, says a new Cornell study.
In fact, they are more likely to ponder the risks, take longer (about 170 milliseconds more) weighing the pros and cons of engaging in high-risk behavior than adults — and actually overestimate the risks. It’s just that they often decide the benefits — the immediate gratification or peer acceptance — outweigh the risks, says Valerie F. Reyna, professor of human development at Cornell.

リスクやベネフィットを考えていないってわけじゃなく、要は考えた上で、自分にとって得なことをやっちゃうってだけ。
