Abstract
Several authors have studied the risks arising from the growth in mobile phone use (e.g. large debts
incurred by young people, banned or dangerous use of cellular phones). The aim of this study is to
analyse whether impulsivity, which has often been related to various forms of addictive behaviours, is
associated with massive use of and dependence on the mobile phone. In this study, 108 female
undergraduate psychology students were screened using a questionnaire evaluating actual use of and
perceived dependence on the mobile phone, and with the French adaptation of the UPPS Impulsive
Behavior Scale. This scale identifies four distinct components associated with impulsive behaviour:
Urgency, lack of Premeditation, lack of Perseverance, and Sensation Seeking. The results showed that a
relationship can be established between the use of and perceived dependence on the cellular phone and
two facets of impulsivity: Urgency and lack of Perseverance
