Background and Purpose: Risky decisions play a pivotal role in personal and social life, and disruptions in these decisions may lead to impulsive behaviors in individuals. This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between spiritual health, self-esteem and impulsivity in students of Shahid Chamran University in Ahwaz, Iran.

Subjects completed three questionnaires about spiritual health, self-esteem and impulsivity. Spiritual health and self-esteem were considered as predictors, and impulsivity was considered as response variable. Data analysis was performed using Pearson’s correlation-coefficient and multivariate regression analysis.

In addition, coefficients of linear regression with repeated input pattern to combine multiple variables for spiritual health and self-esteem with impulsivity were significant (P=0.001).
