Abstract
Problematic Internet Use (PIU) is considered as an inability to control one’s use of the Internet, which
eventually involves negative consequences in daily life. Among the various psychological factors potentially involved in
the development of PIU, the role of poor self-regulation capacities (e.g., high impulsivity and sensation seeking, low
inhibitory control, poor decision-making abilities) has recently received increased attention. Although the number of
studies currently available on this topic remains limited, our aim here is to review their findings. After briefly defining
PIU and discussing the main instruments which have been developed to assess it, this article describes the studies that
have investigated the relations between PIU and self-regulation. Their heterogeneous findings are discussed and avenues
for future research are provided
