Undergraduate students (N = 146) completed both the Boredom Proneness Scale (BPS; Farmer & Sundberg, 1986) and the Procrastination Scale (PS; Tuckman, 1991). Results indicated that individuals high in procrastination possessed significantly high overall boredom proneness scores. Also, high procrastinators had significantly greater scores on 4 of the 5 BPS subscales labeled external stimulation, internal stimulation, affective responses, and perception of time.
