Abstract
Based on Self-determination Theory (SDT), this study attempted to explore the relationship between perfectionism and college students’ academic procrastination as well as moderating role of causality orientations. A total of 660 undergraduates in three majors from two universities in Jinan, Shandong province participated in the questionnaire survey. The results indicated that: (1) positive perfectionism was significantly negatively correlated with academic procrastination while negative perfectionism was significantly positively correlated with procrastination; (2) controlled orientation and impersonal orientation were all significantly positively correlated with academic procrastination; (3) controlled orientation moderated the relationship between negative perfectionism and college students’ academic procrastination: negative perfectionism can’t predict academic procrastination when controlled orientation was low; negative perfectionism can’t predict academic procrastination when controlled orientation was high; and (4) impersonal orientation moderated the relationship between negative perfectionism and college students’ academic procrastination: negative perfectionism can’t predict academic procrastination when impersonal orientation was low; negative perfectionism significantly positively predicted academic procrastination when impersonal orientation was high.
