Quadrel, Fischoff and Davis, for example, found that adolescents did not perceive themselves to be more invulnerable to certain risks (pregnancy, for example) than did their parents.

Here, as is also implied in "Unter ein Bild," the trope adopts the favored classical model of the arrow striking before it leaves the bow; for a vernacular version of this classical trope, see Dante, Paradiso II, 23ff.: "e forse in tanto in quanto un quadrel posa / e vola eda la noce si dischiava, / giunto mi vidi ove mirabil cosa / mi torse il viso a se .
Alternative explanations, including the "adolescent invulnerability hypothesis" (Blum & Resnick, 1982; Cvetkovich, Grote, Bjorseth, & Sarkissian, 1975) have recently been found to be lacking support (Quadrel, Fishoff, & Davis, 1993).

Other studies relating impulsivity, future time perspective and risk behavior have shown that adolescents often underestimate their chances for negatives outcomes, thus making risk behaviors--such as drug use--more likely (Quadrel, Fischoff, & Davis, 1993; Robbins & Brian, 2004).
Previous research on this relationship includes: the acquisition of health knowledge (Quadrel & Lau, 1989); engaging in health-promoting lifestyle activities such as exercise (Hagger, Chatzisarantis, & Harris, 2006) and good nutrition (von Lengerke, Janssen, & John, 2007); awareness of sex-related risk behavior (Stenner et al., 2006); the perceived risk of illness (Rowe, Montgomery, Duberstein, & Bovbjerg, 2005); and self-orientation for positive health (Park, Edmonson, Fenster, & Blank, 2008).
With regard to risk-taking, evidence does suggest some degree of exaggerated exuberance during the adolescent period, with adolescents over-represented in numerous categories of reckless behavior (Arnett, 1992; Quadrel, Fischhoff, & Davis, 1993), but not to the degree of rebellion and risk-taking characterized by the storm and stress view.
