Types of procrastination
The Perfectionist Procrastinator: The perfectionist procrastinator is known for constantly criticizing her work, having very high standards and fearing failure. This causes a sense of anxiety and stress surrounding the task, causing the person to put it off.
The “I’ve Got Time” Procrastinator: When these people think they have plenty of time to complete a task, they tend to put it off until the last minute.
The Bored Procrastinator: These people find the task mundane and would much rather fill their time with fun activities that provide immediate satisfaction.
The Anxious Procrastinator: These people use procrastination as a mechanism to cope with tasks that cause anxiety. By putting off the task, their anxiety is eased momentarily, but it will become more intense over time, until the task is completed. Then the cycle repeats again.
