This investigation tested two levels of the risk recognition theory - overall perception of risk and situational risk perception. Participants predicted their personal risk and completed the Response Latency Measure (Marx & Gross 1995). Their victimization experiences for the next year were assessed. Contrary to the risk recognition theory, increased overall perception of risk was association with increased victimization in the future. Situational risk perception was not related to future victimization.
