Description

This study examined how stress, resilience, rumination and procrastination predict academic success within a Temporal Motivation Theory (TMT) framework. Data was collected from 353 subjects, who completed a demographic questionnaire, Perceived Stress Scale, 14-item Resilience Scale, Response Styles Questionnaire, and three measures of procrastination (Irrational, General and Decisional Procrastination Scales). A nested linear regression analysis revealed that irrational procrastination was the only significant predictor of academic success (B = 0.11, p = .08). Results would suggest that those engaging in irrational behaviors that delay completing important academic tasks are more likely to have poor academic outcomes.
