The 12 Different Types Of Procrastinators

Let’s face it — we all procrastinate. There’s nothing like the thrill of missing a deadline that get the blood pumping, right? But just before that, before the panicking and the dreading and the fleeting suicidal ideations, we have our very own ways of delaying what we need to do. Think of it as our procrastination personality. That’s nice, isn’t it?

Which one are you?

How is it possible that I am both a Cleaner and Snacker???


Never do today what can be put off till tomorrow (and beyond).

Anything worth doing well is worth putting off until you have more time.

Me, I procrastinate until I feel awful. Then I go to and delegate. Eventually I spend too much money on $5 gigs and spend so much time and effort managing my consultants, that I really get back into the project and start doing it myself.

If its the full moon I stay up all night finishing the effort because you know you have to strike while the iron is hot and I might never get a chance to be motivated on this project again…


I can think of at least one they forgot: The Perfectionist. They spend so much time on details that they never complete anything.


What if the world is coming to an end tomorrow? Wouldn’t doing things now be a waste then? – this belongs to which category?
