Procrastination, Gender, Lay's Procrastination Scale, Bern Sex Role Inventory
Applied Behavior Analysis | Psychology
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of gender on procrastination. It was hypothesized that males will have a higher tendency to procrastinate than females and that a masculine gender role identity is more likely to be associated with procrastination than feminine and androgenous gender role identities. Subjects (N = 80) from a small liberal arts college identified their sex on a demographic survey, and completed the Lay's (1986) Procrastination Scale and the Bern Sex Role Inventory. Results indicated that there was no relationship between procrastination and gender.
