Impulsiveness

Impulsiveness comes when the body fills with adrenaline and you become antsy and tense like you have to do something suddenly. In the slides surrounding Drugs for addictive behavior they use a likert scale with about 30 questions used to narrow down how impulsive someone is feeling. For example, the feeling one might get at the sight or thought of drugs. Impulsiveness lets off dopamine ( happy hormones) inside of the brain, which causes the person to get antsy and feel drawn to the cause of those feelings.
