The Lay’s General Procrastination Scale is a 5 point Likert scale, consisting of 20 items, wherein for each item, response alternatives range from extremely uncharacteristic to extremely characteristic.
Participants rate their agreement with each item on the 5-point Likert scale according to the following order:
1 = Extremely Uncharacteristic
2 = Moderately Uncharacteristic
3 = Neutral
4 = Moderately Characteristic
5 = Extremely Characteristic
10 items are reverse scored. Reversed-keyed items: 3,4,6,8,11,13,14,15,18,20.
After reverse scoring 10 items, all items are totalled into a single score with higher values indicating a greater tendency towards chronic procrastination.
