Description

This study investigates the relationship between three variables: procrastination, the act of needlessly delaying tasks to the point of experiencing subjective discomfort; motivation as defined by the Self-Determination Theory framework; and flow, the state of total absorption on the task at hand. This study extends an original Korean study; subjects were recruited from the Andrews University Behavioral Sciences Research Participation Pool for a more diverse and robust sample. We hypothesize that procrastination will be positively related with amotivation and inversely related with intrinsic motivation, self-determined extrinsic motivation, and flow. We will also conduct a hierarchical multiple regression with this data.
