Juliet is not an impulsive person until she meets and falls in love with Romeo.  Her first act of impulse is her decision to marry a boy she has only just met, in Act 2 Scene 2 (end of the balcony scene):

JULIET
Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed.
If that thy bent of love be honourable,
Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow,
By one that I'll procure to come to thee,
Where and what time thou wilt perform the rite;
And all my fortunes at thy foot I'll lay
And follow thee my lord throughout the world.

The next impulsive move she makes is in Act 3 Scene 5, after Romeo has killed Tybalt.  Her father has promised her in marriage to Paris (within 3 days) and she resolves to get out of this with the help of the Friar or by killing herself:

JULIET
So many thousand times? Go, counsellor;
Thou and my bosom henceforth shall be twain.
I'll to the friar, to know his remedy;
If all else fail, myself have power to die.

Then, of course, finally, in Act 5 Scene 3, when she sees that Romeo has killed himself, she kills herself:

JULIET
Yea, noise? Then I'll be brief. O happy dagger!

[Snatching Romeo's dagger.]

This is thy sheath; [Stabs herself.] there rust, and let me die.

[Falls on Romeo's body, and dies.]
