Beschreibung

Previous research suggests a moderator effect of intelligence on the
relationship between impulsivity and academic achievement. However, the
interaction hypothesis has not been adequately tested so far. The
present study was aimed to analyze the interrelations between
impulsivity, intelligence, and academic performance, with special
interest in testing the interaction effect between impulsivity and
intelligence in the prediction of performance. To that end, 174
university students, aged from 18 to 37. years, were tested. Analyses
were carried out at the latent level in order to minimize measurement
error and to increase statistical power. The main findings of the study
show that: (a) impulsivity was negatively related to both academic
performance and intelligence; (b) intelligence was positively related to
academic performance; (c) impulsivity and intelligence contributed
significantly and independently to predict and explain academic
performance; and (d) there was a significant interaction effect between
impulsivity and intelligence in predicting academic performance, such
that impulsivity was more strongly associated with performance among the
more intelligent students than among the less intelligent ones
