 This study investigates the predictive ability for interpersonal sensitivity in impulsiveness among a sample of students at Philadelphia University in Amman, Arab Open University- Jordan Branch, Al Falah University- Dubai. The sample consisted of (N=334) male and female undergraduate students from the college of business administration (N=91), mass communication (N=51), law (N=46), and arts and humanities (N=146). The researchers applied the interpersonal sensitivity scale, which includes five subscales: (Interpersonal awareness, need for approval, separation anxiety, timidity, and the fragile-inner self), and the impulsiveness scale, which includes three subscales: (Motor impulsiveness, non-planning impulsiveness, attentional impulsiveness)

The results revealed that the study sample has a moderate level of interpersonal sensitivity and impulsiveness. The study results also indicated that an increase of interpersonal sensitivity subscale (Separation anxiety) increases motor impulsiveness. The study also found a decrease of interpersonal sensitivity subscale: (Timidity), there is a tendency towards motor impulsiveness, and non-planning impulsiveness. The results also showed an increase of interpersonal sensitivity subscale: (Interpersonal awareness) increases motor impulsiveness, and non-planning impulsiveness, and attentional impulsiveness.
