Impulsivity (Wiki) 
    "Impulsivity (or impulsiveness) is a multifactorial construct[1] that involves a tendency to act on a whim, displaying behavior characterized by little or no forethought, reflection, or consideration of the consequences.[2] Impulsive actions typically are "poorly conceived, prematurely expressed, unduly risky, or inappropriate to the situation that often result in undesirable consequences,"[3] which imperil long term goals and strategies for success.[4] "  
    "Impulsivity is both a facet of normal personality as well as being a major component of various disorders including: ADHD,[7] substance use disorders,[8] bipolar disorder,[9] antisocial personality disorder,[10] and borderline personality disorder.[9] Impulsiveness is also shown by some research to be a factor in procrastination.[11] Abnormal patterns of impulsivity have also been noted instances of acquired brain injury[12] and neurodegenerative diseases.[13] Neurobiological findings suggest that there are specific brain regions involved in impulsive behavior [14][15][16] although different brain networks may contribute to different manifestations of impulsivity,[17] and that genetics may play a role.[18]
