Abstract
The present study had two primary objectives; one, to examine whether general self-efficacy was correlated with procrastination; and two, to investigate if a specific motivation approach could be linked to the tendency to procrastinate.

The third purpose of the study was to examine whether the tendency to procrastinate differed between men and women. Seventy-nine participants (62 women and 17 men) completed a self-evaluation questionnaire containing items measuring the three... (More)

The third purpose of the study was to examine whether the tendency to procrastinate differed between men and women. Seventy-nine participants (62 women and 17 men) completed a self-evaluation questionnaire containing items measuring the three constructs (General Procrastination Scale; General Self-efficacy Scale, and Achievement-Motive Grid). A bivariate correlation analysis was carried out to investigate potential relationships. No results were found in the study’s first two objectives. However, a gender difference was indicated; males demonstrated a higher degree of procrastination than females. (Less)
