Premeditation & Impulsivity:

>Premeditation reflects “the tendency to think and reflect on the consequences of an act before engaging in that act,” and lack of Premeditation appears to be the most common conceptualization of impulsivity in personality psychology (Whiteside & Lynam, 2001, p. 685). The working definition of impulsivity, presented earlier, described two modes of failure to restrain impulses: (1) failure to consider possible negative consequences before acting and (2) succumbing to temptation despite considering negative consequences. Lack of Premeditation clearly indicates the former.<
