|Subject: A leading procrastination expert reveals which personality types tend to put stuff off Fri Dec 02, 2016 10:53 pm|| |
|Everyone procrastinates a little, but according to psychologist Tim Pychyl, some personality types are more likely to put stuff off.|
If you're impulsive, disorganized, or consider yourself a perfectionist, Pychyl says you might not be knocking out tasks in a timely fashion.
Pychyl is an associate professor at Carleton University. He has been studying procrastination for the better part of two decades, which makes him perhaps the foremost expert on what compels people to delay important tasks.
Contrary to popular belief, we don't procrastinate because we lack the necessary willpower or time-management skills. "We procrastinate because of a misregulation of emotion," Pychyl tells Business Insider. "It's an emotion-coping response."
Try to recall the last time you procrastinated -- maybe it was a big project for work or a set of chores at home. In any case, you probably put the work off because you dreaded confronting the emotions that came with the task: embarrassment, incompetence, or perhaps pure boredom.
According to Pychyl's research, the kinds of people most likely to misregulate their emotions are those who are more impulsive, are low in conscientiousness (meaning they lack self-discipline), and fear seeming imperfect.
