Part of the The Springer Series in Social Clinical Psychology book series (SSSC)


Throughout this volume we have noted that procrastinators differ in emotional, cognitive, and behavioral domains compared to nonprocrastinators. Research findings reported in several Chapters indicate positive relations between procrastination and a wide variety of variables such as depression, forgetfulness, disorganization, dysfunctional impulsivity, sensation-seeking, perfectionism, noncompetitiveness, and decreased energy and self-control.
