This study investigated rash impulsivity, reward sensitivity and a range of adolescent risk-taking behaviours using both self-report and behavioural measures of each of these variables. It found that (a) rash impulsivity and reward sensitivity were related dimensions of the impulsivity construct, (b) self-report and behavioural measures were not correlated even when theoretically assessing the same dimension of impulsivity, and (c) of all the risk-taking behaviours examined, rash impulsivity and reward sensitivity were significantly correlated with riding without a seatbelt.
