Welcome to your Are you a procrastinator?
We have used a MindTools questionnaire for deciding whether you are a procrastinator - it's very quick and simple with 15 questions. It should take you no more than 5 minutes and you will see whether you are procrastinator or not.

For each statement, click the button in the column that most applies to rate yourself by indicating the extent to which each statement is characteristic or uncharacteristic of you. The scale ranges from (1) 'Not like me at all' to (5) 'Very like me.' Note that (3) on the scale is neutral i.e. the statement is neither characteristic nor uncharacteristic of you.
