 +<​blockquote>​
 +The Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11) is a 30 item self-report instrument designed to assess the personality/​behavioral construct of impulsiveness. Originally developed as part of a larger attempt to relate anxiety and impulsiveness to psychomotor efficiency, the BIS is arguably the most commonly administered self-report measure for the assessment of impulsiveness in both research and clinical settings. ​
