Academic Procrastination and Personality Traits in College Students
Procrastination is an intentional delay of intended course of action, in spite of an awareness of negative consequences. Personality traits are lot but in this research it is about the big five personality inventories i.e. OCEAN openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. These personality traits will reflect a person’s characteristics. The aim of my research is to study the academic procrastination and personality traits in college students. The objectives are to study the academic procrastination and personality traits in college students, to study the gender differences and grade differences in the level of academic procrastination and personality traits, to study the relationship between academic procrastination with personality traits in college students. The sample size is 100 including males and females and undergraduates and postgraduates. The tools used to analyze data are Academic procrastination scale and NEO-FFI personality inventory. The findings revealed that the hypothesis were accepted for the gender differences of the personality traits and of grade differences in one of the personality traits but hypothesis rejected for the other variable i.e. of academic procrastination. There was no significant relationship between academic procrastination and personality traits except for just one trait i.e. conscientiousness.
