Abstract

Perfectionism is a multidimensional concept composed by three aspects: self-oriented perfectionism, perfectionism oriented towards others and socially prescribed perfectionism (Hewitt, Flett, 1991, 2007). Self-oriented perfectionism describes the perfectionistic requests oriented towards one’s own person, the perfectionism oriented towards others refers to the perfectionistic requests that are oriented to other people while the socially prescribed perfectionism represents the constant perception of the individual that people around him have certain perfectionistic expectations from him.

Anxiety is considered an emotional transitory state that can be occasionally experienced by any person, with different frequency and duration. Experiencing anxiety during longer periods of time and the general tendency to view the world as threatening and dangerous are dimensions that define a kind of malfunction of pathogen valences.

Procrastination is a behaviour characterized by postponing actions or solving tasks for later. Procrastination is described as an irrational tendency of delaying a task that should be accomplished (Lay, 1992).

The present study had the main objective of examining the possibilities that a correlation between perfectionism, anxiety and procrastination might exist and studying the interaction between perfectionism and anxiety in predicting procrastination among college students.
