Topic: Procrastination, and some ways to avoid it
Summary: Procrastination adversely affects over 50% of the student population (e.g, Piers, 2007). Given the ubiquity of this decision making trend, and the potentially long-term nature of its consequences (e.g. Blunt, Pychyl, & Thibodeau, 2000), itŐs necessary to re-examine how procrastination is thought of, its causes and its potential solutions.
This presentation does just that through the review of research in the psychology of decision making which surround procrastination and explores their apparent implications. These implications are then considered for their contribution to avoiding procrastination.
