Here are three quick ways to discover your own impulsivity rating.

Impulsivity Test 1
Created by Impulse Research Group member Dr Margaret Yufera-Leitch this test involves matching symbols. This is a shortened and simplified version of a computer-driven test that you can find online at: impulsive-eating.com

All you have to do is time yourself as you try and identify which of the four symbols on the right matches the one on the far left. You will find the answers below and your score will reveal just how impulsive you really are.

Impulsivity Test 2
This offers a more graded view of impulsivity, rather than the binary either/or result provided by the first test.

Are you cool, calm and collected when making important decisions or do you often act on impulse?  Check out your IR (Impulsivity Rating) on this quick but informative quiz.

Read the following statements and tick the box that best describes your own behaviour or feelings in the situation described. Answer rapidly and truthfully since you immediate response will be the most accurate. Start the Impulsivity Test 2.
