In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the title characters make impulsive decisions from the moment they are introduced to the audience. For example, during the first moments of meeting in Act I, both Romeo and Juliet profess their love for each other and Juliet even claims, in seeking out Romeo’s identity, that “If he is married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed” (Shakespeare 396). Juliet, in these lines, is stating that if she cannot have Romeo, she would rather die than be with anyone else. This behavior is rather surprising, as Juliet has just met Romeo and knows nothing about him. The article, “Beautiful Brains” addresses studies and findings on how the development of the teenage brain correlates with impulsive behavior in teenagers stating, “We all like new and exciting things, but we never value them more highly than we do during adolescence.

In The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet they are so naive about love and life. Juliet makes many references to thinking she can manipulate the time so it will go by faster.
