The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between executive function, impulsivity, adjustment and motivation in undergraduates.
On the first study, we used three self-report scales to measure impulsivity, adjustment and motivation. The results showed that impulsivity influenced lowering of motivation in undergraduates. On the other hand, a decrease in an adjustment couldn’t be explained only by impulsivity.
On the second study, the 23 subjects participated in the experiment. In an experiment, we used two laboratory tasks (Go/No-Go task and delay discounting task) and neuropsychological tests (Wisconsin Card Sorting Test, Tower of Hanoi and Operation Span Task) to measure aspects of impulsivity and executive function.
Results of this study suggested that impulsivity is associated with a decreased ability to alter choice behavior while functioning adaptively.
