Procrastination is a common phenomenon among young people today in all aspects of their daily lives (Bakar and Khan Journal of Education and Learning (EduLearn), 10, 265–274 2016). The current literature has tended to focus on passive procrastination, while less attention was paid to active procrastination. Despite Bui’s (Journal of Social Psychology, 147, 197–209, 2007) call for additional empirical studies on active procrastination, researchers have simply acknowledged the presence of such an adaptive type of procrastination behavior without further examining its related constructs. Therefore, this study examines both active and passive procrastination to identify the personality traits that affect (active and passive) procrastination and to compare and contrast this relationship between males and females. Results showed different types of personality traits play different roles in these two forms of procrastination in different gender groups.
