The purpose of the present study is to investigate the relationship between academic procrastination and decision making styles and questioning whether decision making styles predict academic procrastination. Sample of the study was 482 (271 female, 211 male) undergraduate students from Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Turkish versions of Procrastination Assessment Scale for Students (Uzun Özer, 2005), General Decision Making Style Inventory (Taşdelen, 2002) and demographic form were administered to students. Correlation and multiple regression analyses indicated significant positive correlations between academic procrastination and both avoidant (r =.29, p<.01) and spontaneous (r =.19, p<.01) decision making styles, but significant negative correlation between academic procrastination and rational decision making style (r = -.12, p<.01). Total model including rational, intuitive, dependent, avoidant and spontaneous decision making styles explained 9.2% of the variance in academic procrastination (R2 = .092, F(5,476) = 9.62, p<.001). Only significant predictor of academic procrastination among decision making styles was avoidant style and it explained 5% of the variance in academic procrastination. Other decision making styles were not significant predictors of academic procrastination. These findings will have implications for psychologists or counselors in counseling center of universities and recommendations for future research.
