    How do you tell the difference? Give me a rational choice you have made that could only come from the full fledged analytical and pre-binding conclusion that a rational choice would be. I'm still hunting for one.

    We procrastinate, in short, because we have not gotten the prompts that would make us act (and on the other side, because we may have gotten prompts that would prompt behavior). In the simplest terms, negative conditioning for acting leads to a lack of acting. And perceived negative feedback for simulating action.

    For me, procrastination is based off of the work more than the time I have to do it. It also depends on if I feel I can get the job done in the time-period given. I also don't like to leave a part of the job hanging and would rather finish early with things feeling 'settled' (Though the whole job is incomplete) than have a certain part of it only partially finished.

    I work better with my own internal standards than with someone else's. It's better that they give what I need to do and the time-frame to do it in. Besides that, its harder for me to know what the person is expecting. That's when perfectionism sets in.

    On the flipside, if I dont like what theyre expecting (Ie it seems frivolous or wasted effort) I wont do it. Or if I HAVE to, I procrastinate until I 'feel up to the [droll] task.'

    I procrastinate because I don't feel like doing something, so I put it off, until the last possible time to do it. Then I work hard thanks to the deadline, and get it done in 1/10th of the time it would have taken me otherwise, because I would have gotten bored/annoyed and stopped doing it if the deadline wasn't immediate. (Some things also just get procrastinated and eventually dropped, like certain school assignments I don't want to do....)

    I procrastinate out of a natural drive to: Maximize time enjoyed and minimize time not enjoyed, with preference given to the present.

It's an optimization problem without an easy solution.
    Oh yeah, they're not always just excuses.. sometimes I know that I just can't tackle things until I get some sleep, manage my responsibilities and when I'm going to do them, or get myself into the right mindset. But people can put off something relatively important for a long, long time because they don't think they have the time when they could clearly cut out some other obligation or just think about where their time is actually going.

    When I procrastinate, this pretty much describes my motivation, too.

    In my case, procrastination is due to a) Boring task, b) wrong timing c) low priority, d) extreme fear of how to handle the situation, and thinking of handling it makes me physically nauseous.

    And sometimes it helps to postpone it as you'll get a luminous idea on how to solve the situation. Other times...you just keep finding ways to keep from doing it

    Partly I'm lazy, partly I enjoy knowing there is something that needs to be done and I'm avoiding it

    It's true, Ne sometimes just needs time to figure stuff out in the background. Sometimes you need to wait for that Eureka moment - you can't force that with a schedule. Schedules frighten Ne away.
