5 traits discovered in pilots prone to having accidents

Hi there.  I came across this tidbit of information while taking an online FAA Wings Safety Seminar.  The FAA Safety website has a great collection of information that you can use to become a safer pilot.  Check out the courses here:

Here are the “5 traits discovered in pilots prone to having accidents”
1) disdain toward rules
2) high correlations between accidents in flying records and safety violations in driving records
3) frequently falling into the personality category of “thrill and adventure seeking”
4) impulsive rather than methodical and disciplined in information gathering and in the speed and selection of actions taken
5) disregard for or under-utilization of information, including flight service personnel, flight instructors, and air traffic controllers
