A chat with Shamarukh Chowdhury about her research on active procrastination. Together, we clarify the concept of procrastination and do a little "myth busting" around the concept of active procrastination; a concept that we call an oxymoron that may be better understood as two types of delay - it's not "procrastination" at all.
Here's an earlier blog post on this topic, and below that are references to the original studies.
