The construct of impulsivity is implicated in a wide variety of psychopathology. However, the heterogeneous factors or subcomponents that differentially predict outcomes are still in the process of being parsed. The present review and meta-analysis focuses on the psychopathological correlates of the Negative Urgency, (lack of) Premeditation, (lack of) perseverance, Sensation Seeking, and Positive Urgency (UPPS/UPPS-P; Whiteside & Lynam, 2001). which provides a relatively new model of… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Dimensional Conceptualizations of Impulsivity
TLDR
Although the DSM–5 trait model captures well a broad conceptualization of impulsivity, some lower-order facets lack specificity, and this study obtained questionnaire ratings and behavioral task data from 450 community-dwelling adults oversampled for a history of involvement in the legal and/or mental health systems. Expand
An Investigation of Alternative Factor Models of Impulsivity using the UPPS-P
TLDR
It is found that positive urgency predicted problem gambling, which supports the predictive utility of impulsivity as a five-factor construct and indicates that utilizing all five factors may increase measurement sensitivity and predictive utility. Expand
Examining the multidimensional structure of impulsivity in daily life
Abstract Impulsivity is a key personality and psychopathology construct that is best conceptualized as multidimensional. The UPPS model is a comprehensive multidimensional framework which definesExpand
A multifactorial and integrative approach to impulsivity in neuropsychology: insights from the UPPS model of impulsivity
TLDR
The model presented provides a valuable rationale to disentangle the nature of brain systems and mechanisms underlying impulsive behaviors in patients with brain damage and may also foster further relevant research in the field of impulsivity and improve assessment and rehabilitation of impulsive behavior in clinical settings. Expand
Rejecting impulsivity as a psychological construct: A theoretical, empirical, and sociocultural argument.
TLDR
It is strongly recommended that psychological scientists and neuroscientists reject the language of impulsivity in favor of a specific focus on the several well-defined and empirically supported factors that impulsivity is purported to cover. Expand
A path model of different forms of impulsivity with externalizing and internalizing psychopathology: Towards greater specificity
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that emotion-relevant impulsivity could be a potentially important treatment target for a set of psychopathologies. Expand
Measuring Impulsivity in Children: Adaptation and Validation of a Short Version of the UPPS-P Impulsive Behaviors Scale in Children and Investigation of its Links With ADHD
TLDR
The results suggest that the short UPPS-P-C may be considered as a promising time-saving tool to assess impulsivity traits in healthy children and in children with psychiatric disorders. Expand
Predictive Validity of the Three-Factor Model of Impulsivity for Risky Behaviors
TLDR
Whether specific dimensions of impulsivity are related to a series of risky behaviors, assessed 3 weeks later, is determined by testing the predictive validity of the multidimensional inventory also in comparison with a standard measure of personality (HEXACO). Expand
Impulsivity facets and substance use initiation: A comparison of two models of impulsivity.
TLDR
The current findings indicate that the Two-Factor Model should be considered to index risk of substance use initiation to guide prevention efforts and highlight the importance of direct comparisons of alternative measurement and theoretical frameworks of impulsivity within the field of substance Use research. Expand
Conceptualizing the UPPS-P Model of Impulsive Personality through Network Analysis: Key Dimensions and General Robustness Across Young Adulthood.
TLDR
Results suggested general robustness in the relations among impulsive personality dimensions, with relations involving lack of premeditation being particularly important for characterizing impulsive Personality's nature. Expand

The present research broadens the understanding of the multidimensional nature of impulsivity by investigating the validity of a German adaptation of the UPPS scale of impulsivity (Whiteside & Lynam,Expand
Heterogeneous inhibition processes involved in different facets of self-reported impulsivity: evidence from a community sample.
TLDR
This study investigated the hypothesis that perseverance and urgency map onto the two distinct inhibitory functions distinguished by Friedman and Miyake, and found TUTs were positively correlated with lack of perseverance, and multiple regressions revealed that urgency was specifically related to errors in prepotent response inhibition.

A test of the four-factor model of impulsivity-related traits
Abstract In a recent article, Whiteside and Lynam [Person. Indiv. Diff. 30 (2001) 669] proposed a new model for understanding personality pathways to impulsive behavior. Their UPPS model maintainsExpand
