Primary Research Focus The development and potential co-development of traits related to impulsivity and sensation seeking across adolescence has garnered substantial attentionwithin the extant literature. Someprior research suggests that facets show distinct patterns of change across adolescence and that intraindividual changes in these traits may be unrelated. However, the extant literature is somewhat hampered bymeasurement issues and inconsistent findings. Using an accelerated longitudinal design in a sample of adolescents (n=1018; ages 11–16), changes in negative urgency, positive urgency, and sensation seeking were examined.
