Abstract

The goal of the present study was to investigate the factors related to students' career indecision. There are many different variables associated with career indecision. This study examined the role of dysfunctional career thoughts and procrastination in career indecision. The sample of this study consists of 127 university students including 52 female students and 75 male students who were selected from the population of Allameh Tabatab'i University students. Questionnaires on dysfunctional career thoughts (Kasayi & Bahrami, 2006), Career Indecision Inventory (Osipow, 1976) and A General Procrastination Scale (Lee, 1986) were administered to the sample. Research findings show that dysfunctional career thoughts and procrastination are highly correlated with the students’ career indecision scores (p < .01). Secondly, it was found that the dysfunctional career thoughts and procrastination could significantly predict the students’ career indecision scores (p < .01). According to the results, if dysfunctional career thoughts and procrastination increases, career indecision in the student would increase, too.
