Impulsiveness and self-control are considered as a personality and behavioral traits. The BIS-11(Patton et al., 1995), a measure of impulsiveness and the RSS(Sugiwaka, 1995), a measure of self-control, are the most common and well-known scales. Precedence research on these measures showed no gender differences. In an attempt to design the revised version for the Japanese people of BIS-11 by Kobashi & Ida(2011), gender differences were not considered. Hence this study, the researchers investigated the gender differences of impulsiveness using the Japanese version of BIS-11. We would like to incorporate the gender differences of self-control using RSS as well as this topic. 305 participants(117 males and 188 females)replied to these measures. The result showed no significant gender differences. In other words, with these two scales no gender differences were apparent.
