Dr. Ernest Bordini
Clinical Psychology
In brief: Possible
Judgment is a higher order cognitive function - poor impulse control and judgment are usually associated with significant head injuries which damage the vulnerable frontal lobes.
This is less obvious than a broken arm or not being able to speak well - so assessment of personality change may require collateral reports, careful history and neuropsych evals.
