Barratt Impulsiveness Scale

The Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11; Patton et al., 1995) is a questionnaire designed to assess the personality/behavioral construct of impulsiveness.  It is the most widely cited instrument for the assessment of impulsiveness and has been used to advance our understanding of this construct and its relationship to other clinical phenomena for 50 years (for review see Stanford et al., 2009).

The following sections outline the BIS-11 scoring and factor structure, support for instrument questions, and variations of the scale.

Scoring and Factor Structure of the BIS-11

The current version of the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11; Patton et al., 1995) is composed of 30 items describing common impulsive or non-impulsive (for reverse-scored items) behaviors and preferences. 

Items are scored on a 4-point scale:
Rarely/Never = 1
Occasionally = 2
Often = 3
Almost Always/Always = 4

The perspective of Dr. Barratt and the International Society for Research on Impulsivity is that impulsivity is a multi-faceted construct and this multi-dimensionality is reflected in the BIS-11 factor structure.  While many scholarly manuscripts report only the total score, it is recommended that at least the second-order factors be reported to account for their individual contribution to the relationship being tested.

The Patton et al. (1995) manuscript defining the current version of the instrument performed a principal components analysis on BIS-11 scores gathered from a sample of 248 psychiatric inpatients and 412 university students.  Factor analyses from these cases revealed three-second order and 6 oblique first-order factors and three-second order factors were identified.  The following demonstrates the relationship of the first and second-order factor structure as well as item scoring of the BIS-11 factors.
