M. Kalkan, A. Demir and A. Demir
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the relationship between academic procrastination and decision making styles. The sample of the study was 503 (277 women, 226 men) undergraduate students. Procrastination Assessment Scale for Students (Solomon & Rothblum, 1984) and General Decision Making Style Inventory (Scott & Bruce, 1995) were administered to the students. Correlation results indicated that there were significant positive correlations between academic procrastination and both avoidant (r = .29, p<.01) and spontaneous decision making styles (r =.19, p<.01), but there was significant negative correlation between academic procrastination and rational decision making style (r = -.12, p<.01).
