Résumé
Several authors have investigated the risks arising from the growth in mobile phone use (e.g. debts
incurred by young people). The aims of the present study are (1) to validate a new questionnaire
assessing problematic mobile phone use: the Problematic Mobile Phone Use Questionnaire
(PMPUQ), and (2) to investigate the relationships between the PMPUQ and the multi-faceted
construct of impulsivity. With these aims, 339 subjects were screened using the PMPUQ and the
UPPS Impulsive Behaviour Scale (UPPS) which assesses four distinct components associated with
impulsive behaviours (urgency, lack of premeditation, lack of perseverance and sensation seeking).
The results showed that the PMPUQ has an acceptable fit and assesses four different dimensions of
problematic mobile phone use (prohibited use, dangerous use, dependence, financial problems).
While each facet of impulsivity played a specific role in mobile phones use, urgency appeared to be
the strongest predictor of problematic use
