Many studies examine delay discounting and procrastination independently in literature. The current study investigates for the relationship between procrastination and future discounting, unlike others. A difference between procrastinators and non-procrastinators in terms of their tendency to discount is also expected. Further, the response times of participants are expected to differ according to discount values (k values) that derived from each preference. Research was conducted with 104 undergraduates. The expected relations and differences were found to be statistically significant. The results shed light on the psychological correlations of participants’ discount rates and procrastination scores.
