Impulsivity is now widely viewed as a multidimensional construct consisting of a number of related dimensions. Although many measures of impulsivity are correlated, most recent factor analyses support at least a two-factor model. In the current paper, these two factors have been labelled reward sensitivity, reflecting one of the primary dimensions of Gray's personality theory, and rash-spontaneous impulsiveness. The evidence supporting the existence of two dimensions of impulsivity is reviewed… Expand
Reward drive and rash impulsiveness as dimensions of impulsivity: implications for substance misuse.
TLDR
This paper proposed a model that integrates the findings from research into individual differences with recent models of neural substrates implicated in the development of substance misuse, and parallel recent developments in the neurosciences. Expand
The Concepts of Rash Impulsiveness and Reward Sensitivity in Substance Use Disorders
TLDR
Results provide evidence for the existence of the two hypothesized impulsivity factors in a clinical sample of substance dependent patients and Meaningful relationships between the model and drug use characteristics have been found, providing furtherevidence for the validity of theTwo-factor model. Expand
Negative emotion-driven impulsivity predicts substance dependence problems.
TLDR
Among the different impulsivity dimensions, urgency was the best predictor of severity of medical, employment, alcohol, drug, family/social, legal and psychiatric problems in ISD, explaining 13-48% of the total variance of these indices. 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
Support for a two-factor model of impulsivity and hazardous substance use in British and Australian young adults
Multiple lines of evidence suggest impulsivity comprises two distinct components relevant to substance misuse. Reward drive reflects sensitivity to rewarding stimuli and subsequent approachExpand
Associations Between Impulsivity and Body Dissatisfaction in Females at Risk for Developing Eating Disorders

Impulsivity and adolescent substance use: Rashly dismissed as “all-bad”?

  • 2008
TLDR
A review of recent advances in the psychobiology of impulsivity, including current perspectives on how it can convey risk for substance misuse, aims to reframe thinking on adolescent impulsivity to include the positive with the negative, and discusses how such thinking can benefit efforts for early intervention and future research. Expand
Neurocognitive function in substance dependence
Background: Changes in neuropsychological and emotional systems are associated with substance dependence and reduce the chance of successfully maintaining abstinence after treatment. Impulsivity isExpand
Impulsiveness and Inhibitory Mechanisms
Impulsive personality traits are generally detrimental for the individual and have been consistently linked to several psychiatric conditions, drug use and relapse, criminal and antisocial conducts,Expand
Distinctions in Behavioral Impulsivity: Implications for Substance Abuse Research
TLDR
These findings suggest that researchers should carefully consider their selection of laboratory behavioral impulsivity measures, and that the measure(s) selected should be related to the particular underlying processes relevant to substance use disorders and treatment success. Expand

The impulsivist: a multi-impulsive personality disorder.
TLDR
A literature review of impulsivity in the substance abuse disorders, eating disorders, classical disorders of impulse control, self-harm and personality disorders suggests there is a significant number of patients who have a very poor prognosis and are characterised not just by the specific presenting symptom but by multiple impulsive behaviours. Expand
Multi-impulsivity of Japanese patients with eating disorders: primary and secondary impulsivity
TLDR
Primary impulsivity (chronological prior occurrence of impulsive behaviors) does exist even in a very different culture, although the number of patients of this type is very limited. Expand
Varieties of impulsivity
  • J. Evenden
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Psychopharmacology

TLDR
Evidence for varieties of impulsivity from several different areas of research, including human psychology, psychiatry and animal behaviour, suggests that several neurochemical mechanisms can influence impulsivity, and that impulsive behaviour has no unique neurobiological basis. Expand
Does the tendency to act impulsively underlie binge eating and alcohol use problems? An empirical investigation
The co-occurrence of problem drinking and binge eating and purging has been well documented. However, there has been relatively little investigation of etiological models that may influence theExpand
Clarifying the role of impulsivity in bulimia nervosa.
TLDR
It is suggested that future researchers assess urgency, not lack of planning, when assessing impulsivity as a risk factor for bulimic symptoms, as well as the tendency to act rashly when experiencing negative affect. Expand
Personality variables and disorders in anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.
TLDR
All dominant models of the eating disorders implicate personality variables in the emergence of weight concerns and the development of specific symptoms such as bingeing and purging and a less consistent picture suggesting affective instability and impulsivity has emerged from the assessment of subjects with bulimia nervosa.

Assessing the component structure of four self-report measures of impulsivity
This study examined the component structure of impulsivity, by Principal Components Analysis of 12 subscales, from four widely used self-report measures of impulsivity. Two hundred and forty fiveExpand
The relationship between eating disorders and substance use: moving beyond co-prevalence research.
TLDR
It is suggested that an understanding of the etiological relationship between eating disorders and substance use will be arrived at only after fundamental inquiries into the functional relationship betweeneating disorders symptomatology and substanceUse patterns have been conducted. Expand
Disordered eating behaviors and reward sensitivity.
TLDR
It is suggested that reward sensitivity has some associations with aspects of disordered eating and therefore may have relevance for theories on the maintenance of some forms of eating disorder-related behavior. Expand
Novelty seeking, risk taking, and related constructs as predictors of adolescent substance use: an application of Cloninger's theory.
TLDR
This study tested derivations from Cloninger's (1987a) theory of substance use on a sample of 457 adolescents, finding that TPQ scales converged with constructs from other theoretical systems, being correlated with measures of behavioral undercontrol, risk taking, impulsiveness, anger, independence, life events, tolerance for deviance, and sensation seeking.
