Summary: The likelihood-to-act (LtA) survey is a 32-item instrument that measures impulsive and analytic dispositions in solving math problems. In this research report we compare it to other instruments related to the impulsive-analytic construct such as Frederick's Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT) and the Barratt impulsive scale in terms of mean scores, Cronbach alpha values, and correlation values. Both LtA-impulsive and LtA-analytic subscales have acceptable reliabilities of 0.79 and 0.83 respectively. The LtA-analytic and LtA-difference (analytic-impulsive difference) correlated well with other the Need for cognition subscale and CRT scores. The correlations involving LtA-impulsive subscale were unexpected and call for further investigation.
