In this paper we propose the Cybersickness Susceptibility Questionnaire (CSSQ), which predicts the likeliness of a user experiencing cybersickness related symptoms when exposed to virtual reality (VR). The items on this questionnaire were compiled from several previous works that have demonstrated the influence of various biological, chemical and psychological factors on the human senses and nervous system.
A pilot study with 24 participants showed a correlation between CSSQ items and the perceived cybersickness during and after a virtual roller coaster ride. A high mean value in the CSSQ indicates a stronger perception of cybersickness during and after the exposure to VR.
