Title: An exploratory study on adaptive psychopathological risk and problematic use of the web associated with procrastination in university students
Author: Cerniglia, Luca
Abstract: La procrastinación es un fenómeno creciente entre los estudiantes universitarios y la investigación internacional ha señalado que puede afectar a la calidad de sus logros e incluso a su bienestar psicofísico. Se ha sugerido que, además de manifestarse en el contexto académico, la procrastinación representa en algunas materias una tendencia estable en diversas áreas de la vida diaria y puede persistir por el resto de sus vidas. Este estudio ha recopilado una muestra de conveniencia de N=382 estudiantes universitarios en Italia, que fueron administrados a través de la Escala de Procrastinación Pura, el Autoinforme de Adultos, la Prueba de Adicción a Internet y la Escala de Impulsividad de Barratt. Nuestros resultados confirmaron la relación entre el riesgo psicopatológico, la impulsividad, el uso problemático de la web y la propensión a la procrastinación académica en una muestra de estudiantes universitarios, brindando apoyo para la construcción de programas de prevención e intervención.Procrastination is a growing phenomenon among university students and international research has pointed out that it can affect the quality of students’ achievements, and even their psycho-physical well-being. It has been suggested that, besides manifesting in the academic context, procrastination represents in some subjects a stable trend in various areas of daily life and can persist for the rest of their lives. This study has recruited a convenience sample of N=382 university students in Italy, who were administered through the Pure Procrastination Scale, the Adult Self-Report, the Internet Addiction Test, and the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale. Our results confirmed the association between psychopathological risk, impulsiveness, problematic use of the web and a propensity towards academic procrastination in a sample of university students, providing support for the construction of prevention and intervention programs.
