This study examines the combined relationship of self-efficacy, extrinsic motivation, and perfectionism on procrastination. 108 Education University of Hong Kong students, 45 males and 63 females, ages 18-25 were approached to complete a series of questionnaires examining their procrastination and the three factors. A significant three-way interaction was observed between the variables, with individuals with high perfectionism and high extrinsic motivation predicting higher procrastination when the individual’s self-efficacy was low, and high self-efficacy and low perfectionism reporting less procrastination when self-efficacy was high. Implications for reducing procrastination in classroom setting, and effects of parental styles were also mentioned along with ways to reduce procrastination for individual readers.
