Poor Impulse Control: Inhibitory volition is a fancy term for poor impulse control. People with adhd tend to have poor impulse control or deficits in inhibitory volition.
Dr. Glen Elliott
Child Psychiatry 43 years experience
It is important to understand that there are many other reasons for poor impulse control besides ADHD, including immaturity, anxiety, and impulse control disorder. It is a symptom, not a diagnosis.

Not necessarily: Irresistable impulse may be an impulse not resisted. There are degrees of both volition and inhibition they are not equal or the same.
