Underlying Behaviors

For example, a student procrastinate on studying- they are self-handicapping so that if they do badly they can attribute it to procrastination rather than their abilities, to protect their self-esteem.

Underlying behaviors include:

  • Self-sabotaging, when people procrastinate to hinder their own success and wellbeing
  • Sensation seeking, like when they want to add challenge and excitement to tasks like working up against deadline.
  • Seeking distraction
  • Seeking control, to feel in control of their life and schedule
  • Rebellion- to get revenge against an authority figure that they resent
  • Multi-tasking
