Abstract In this study, the relationship between Personality Traits and Academic Procrastination of one hundred undergraduate students was investigated. The study was conducted with 100 Indian students who were engaged in different educational programmes of graduation at various higher education centres of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, India. The age of participants ranged from 18 to 25 years. Data collection tools included the Procrastination Assessment Scale for Students (Rothblum & Solomon, 1984) and the Big Five Inventory. Correlational analysis revealed that academic procrastination was found to have a negative correlation with extraversion alone, while it did not significantly correlate with the other Big Five qualities (conscientiousness, agreeableness, openness, and neuroticism). These findings suggest that extraversion may mitigate undergraduate students' inclination for academic procrastination.
