Therefore, compulsive buying involves both impulsivity
Hypothesis 2: Unintentionally severe injury during NSSI will be positively associated with impulsivity
The second system involves behavior in response to reward or non-punishment signals, and is related to the impulsivity
dimension of personality.
Conceptualized as decision-making and waiting-capacity-related measure, time in the central area of the plus-maze seems to be related with at least two main definitions of the multidimensional construct of impulsivity
(for a review see Bari & Robbins, 2013).
may be related to inhibitory control and perseveration, which implies that the RH is involved in inhibition of impulsive responses.
In the first model, four latent variables were identified and labelled in the statistical programme as follows: "AE" = self-efficacy, "IMP" = impulsivity
, "IRIT" = irritability and "TENS" = psychic tension (refer to Figure 1) Self-efficacy was modelled based on four psychological items (drawn from the evaluation scale of self-efficacy), labelled in the programme as Autoefic_1 up to Autoefic_4; impulsivity
was modelled based on indicators drawn from the scale of impulsivity
, labelled as Impuls_1 up to Impuls 4; irritability was modelled based on indicators drawn from the scale of stress, labelled in the programme as Tens_1 up to Tens_4.
There exists a strong correlation between trait impulsivity
and psychiatric disorders (substance abuse and manic patients).
The ADHD-RS contains 18 items adopted from the 18 symptoms listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV; American Psychiatric Association 2000) criteria for ADHD; accordingly, 9 items are related to inattention and 9 to hyperactivity and impulsivity
, with each item rated from 0 to 3.
Delinquency has been an important factor in studying the relationship between criminal behavior and impulsivity
because researchers are interested in predisposing factors that may contribute to criminal behavior; studying delinquents gives the researcher the opportunity to track the criminal activity of the subject to see if there are commonalities that are correlated with delinquency and subsequent criminal behavior.
Of the facets of the construct of impulsivity
that have been studied, motor impulsiveness ought to be the dimension most closely associated with impulsive driving, because the motor component of this type of activity is essential.
