dc.description.abstractThe aim of the present study is to investigate the relationship between cyberloafing (using the Internet for personal purposes during working hours) and trait procrastination, conscientiousness and those who hold senior positions in corporations. A cross - sectional correlational design was used and participants (n=88) completed a questionnaire via Facebook and LinkedIn. Lay’s (1986) General Procrastination Scale, the International Inventory Personality Pool (IPIP, 2014) was used to measure conscientiousness and, cyberloafing measures were from a study by Vitak, Crouse and LaRose (2011). The hypotheses were not supported, though procrastination was found to be positively related to conscientiousness. Additionally, males were found to cyberloaf more than females. Better definitions of cyberloafing and empirically tested measures would support more accurate analysis of cyberloafing in future research.en
