Procrastination, or "Why Haven't I Started That Paper?"
Procrastination is a behavior that most, if not all, college students fall prey to. But what about us makes us procrastinate? Furthermore, what are the effects of procrastination? Scientists have studied procrastination in everyday life and, most extensively, in academic endeavors. Some have labeled procrastination as a "self-defeating" behavior, even proposing intervention steps, as if procrastination were an illness. Others assert that procrastination has real benefits, including higher quality of work brought on by the pressure of an impending deadline.
