Association of Internet Use and Procrastination among College Students
Keywords:Internet Usage, Procrastination, College Students, Adolescents
AbstractA world without the internet is improbable. Teenagers are occasionally made to use the internet for academic reasons. Although there are advantages to technical development, its drawbacks must also be considered. The negative impacts of extreme internet use can result in procrastination. The research’s goal is to determine whether there is any connection between college students in Salem, Tamil Nadu, who use the Internet, procrastinate, and their psychological health. The researcher employed a research method, and the Internet Usage Scale (IUS) and the Procrastination Scale (PS) were used to collect data. In this descriptive research, 1460 participants (aged 17 to 20) were chosen at random from Sacred Heart College’s undergraduate student body. The Pearson’s correlation coefficient was used to find the relationship between the variables. The outcomes of the tests measuring internet usage and procrastination were found to be significantly positively correlated. The internet should be used in a controlled manner because it can be seductive and troublesome. Internet is widely available, simple to use, and quite dangerous, particularly for young users, due to the illogical ways in which it is used.
