In brief: Problem with impulse

A range of disorders are loosely clustered under impulse control disorders including intermittent explosive disorder (impulsive aggression), kelptomania (impulsive stealing), pyromania (impulsive fire setting), pathological gambling, trichotillomania (impulsive hair pulling), & not otherwise specified (nos) (other problems where poor impulse control is key).
Not necessarily linked to each other.
