The summary statistics resulting from the ANOVA analysis suggest that there is a definite correlation between procrastination levels and self-esteem in the population examined. Procrastination scores from the procrastination scale (Lay, 1986) covered a wide range of responses, however a mean score of about sixty with a standard deviation of just over twelve, meaning that the majority of the study population had a (self-assessed) procrastination level of over fifty percent and with a fair degree of concentration in the middle quartiles, as well. This grouping is somewhat significant in and of itself, demonstrating a fairly persistent emergence of some level of procrastination throughout the population studied, yet the spread in the procrastination level as reported by the subjects is still broad enough to reduce the level of certainty in the further analysis and the correlation the data appoints to.

A closer examination of preliminary descriptive shows that there are actually more subjects in the population below the mean established level of procrastination, however the...


This skew in the data is again telling without any further interpretation, allowing certain very broad conclusions regarding procrastination in the population to be drawn, and in this instance could be seen as a potential boost to establishing the relationship tested here. High procrastinators tend to be significantly more prone to procrastination, and thus the effects of self-esteem (if such effects are established) would be magnified.
The homogeneity of the variances as measured by Levene's statistic appears to be significant, which supports the hypothesis that there is indeed a correlation between self-esteem and procrastination. If the variances of both variables as expressed throughout the population are significantly similar, as Levene's measure suggests they are, then it would support the conclusion that these two variables are correlated -- that one influences the other, or that both are influenced by a third (or more) factor. This cannot be taken as conclusive statistical evidence of a correlation between the two variables, of course, but if the pattern of distribution in the subjects' reported levels of self-esteem tracks the same skew noted in the distribution of subjects' reported levels of procrastination, it would seem quite likely that a strong correlation would be evidenced in other standard statistics delivered in…

Procrastination Self-Esteem and Procrastination There is a substantial amount of indirect evidence presented in the literature that suggests a strong negative correlation between self-esteem and procrastination, such that high levels of self-esteem are generally associated with lower rates of procrastination, less severe or extreme procrastination, and/or lower levels of adverse effects from procrastination (Wolters, 2003; Deniz, 2006; Steel, 2007). Though this research does not establish a causal relationship -- i.e., it does

Self-Esteem and Procrastination Self-esteem is a primary component of each person's life experiences on a daily basis. Self-esteem may be defined as a person's evaluation of themselves, for example "I am not satisfied with myself as a person" or "I like the way I am." Sometime unconsciously, we evaluate ourselves day after day; this is a not a conscious procedure because only the individual realizes the end result. When an individual

Self Procrast The Effects of Self-Esteem Level on Degrees/Frequencies of Procrastination: A Survey Study That there is a relationship between procrastination and self-esteem is well-established in previous and current research literature, however the nature of this relationship remains largely unknown. A survey study using the Rosenberg Self-Esteem instrument and the Lay Procrastination scale was conducted to shed further light on this area of inquiry. Findings show a direct and inverse correlation between

Procrastination appears to be a common problem in western worlds, specifically with college students in relation to academic-specific tasks in comparison to normal adults with everyday tasks. Varied perspectives have been applied to the research of procrastination and some have come to their conclusions as to the nature of procrastination and the reasons behind it. Indirect evidence points to a correlation existing between self-esteem and procrastination. The evidence briefly displays

Self-Development Procrastination and self-esteem Self-Esteem and Procrastination Procrastination and self-esteem Self-esteem Many authors and practitioners have defined self-esteem differently, but the best definition would be the evaluation of any individual, regarding the person's worth.
