The sample in this study were 194 adolescents and used the Google form as a data collection medium. The risk-taking behavior scale was compiled based on aspects of Weber and Blais and the extraversion scale used Eysenck's aspects which were then analyzed using SPSS 20. This study shows the results that extraversion has a positive relationship with risk-taking behavior in adolescents as indicated by the correlation value (r) 0.607 and a sig, ( p) 0.000.
