This thesis covers a variety of topics associated with impulsivity. The first two chapters serve to provide context for an original study. The literature reviewed in this study shows impulsivity to be a multi-faceted construct associated with a number of health compromising behaviors. However, basic variables of depression, anxiety, and stress may not predict impulsive decision making. The final section of this thesis, and the main motivation for this research, was an original research study.
