Exploring Volitional Problems in Academic Procrastinators.
Dewitte, Siegfried; Lens, Willy
International Journal of Educational Research, v33 n7-8 p733-50 2000
Tested the hypothesis that focusing on details of studying (a low-action identity) would enhance performance and persistence. Data for 35 Belgian college students supported this hypothesis for academic nonprocrastinators, but for procrastinators, a low identity was found to enhance only task persistence and performance on a creative response indicator but to decrease performance on recall questions.
