as a true gamer, I am offended.

Erin Stark said...

If getting housework done is procrastination and drawing an internet comic isn't, then I am confused about what is important and what isn't. (not saying/just saying)

lou said...

They are saying that you clean instead of doing something else. So for instance you need to do your taxes but you procrastinate by cleaning.

Penny said...

well, one of you is probably getting paid actual money for their work while the other is delaying their actual work by doing things around the house. how about letting everyone decide what they deem important for themselves & just enjoying the humor! and if you don't get it, then maybe you shouldn't be delaying your important housework by browsing a site called called tastefully offensive!

Andreina Baiano said...

I am a combination of Napper (mostly), Sidetracker, Internet Researcher, Snacker, Gamer, Watcher, Perpetuator, but mostly very, very Panicker.

Cheshire Cat said...

You're not an artist, so you don't share the same values. Pretty easy!

JustVisiting said...

And now I am procrastinating by counting the upvotes on this comment. I should go. I really should go.

Bob Jenkins said...

They forgot Procrastabation...

I am enjoying the 'Mom' comment:

BWHAHAHAHA

Erin Stark said...

Oh man, I posted this like ten minute ago and so many presumptuous comments all ready. I love playing the devil's advocate! (P.S. Who says I'm not an artist?)

Sera said...

I just searched " cat swims in spaggeti" No results :( I am dissapoint.

Jessica said...

If you were a true gamer you'd enjoy games of all variety.

Penny said...

"If getting housework done is procrastination and drawing an internet comic isn't, then I am confused about what is important and what isn't." This does!

Alexandra La Torre said...

I am ALL of these except the Delegator, but only because I don't have anyone to delegate to. Although I have been know to try it, on occasion.

True Gamer said...

yea sure, farmville anyone? these are not games...

True Gamer said...

i just said i was offended, but the rest of that post is great :]

GiGi said...

I'm procrastinating right now by laughing at this. Haha. (Back to work. Maybe.)

Shari Chester said...

I'm a watcher! NOOOOOO!

Pedantic said...

That's like saying that if you were a true movie watcher you'd enjoy movies of all variety. Everybody has their own tastes of whatever thing they most enjoy. I don't watch horror flicks, but that doesn't mean I'm not a true movie watcher. I love science-fiction, but not ALL of it is worth watching, in my opinion. That doesn't mean I'm not a sci-fi fan. :P

Pedantic said...

I'm addicted to farmville, minecraft, and cube world. ;)

CaseDigidy said...

Why does everyone have pictures of cats beside their name?

Me said...

Forage for potion ingredients? Just finish this dungeon to level up your paladin? JUST FOUR MORE CRYSTALS TO MINE.

Stephanie Salazar said...

I think I have been all of these at one point. Except the delegator, mo dog is pretty useless at helping out.

Close enough lol

Rory Triskaideka said...

I just wanna get to level 30!! D:

chuck said...

this could also read as "day in the life of a procrastinator"

Even more Pedantic said...

And it doesn't mean that horror movies don't count as movies because you don't watch them. Which is what True Gamer was suggesting in regard to games; they don't play Farmville, therefore it is not a real game.

tastefullyoffensive.com said...

It's the default icon for people who haven't chosen one.

MasterProcrastinator said...

These are actually just steps 1-12

Lori said...

They are playing Animal Crossing. Not Farmville. And the girl in the picture is playing on a DS or a 3DS.

that guy said...

I knew it was a thing.

It isn't necessary that all kinds of patterns & people shown above are actually procrastinators. Making a list, for example, if it is concise, and makes you keep track of your chores, does not steal a great amount of time. Rather, it can make you more organized, efficient & goal-conscious. Splitting the workload, on some situations, is the only practical way to cope with workloads, especially in offices.
Also, one can listen to his own body rhythms, carefully balancing, knowing that if one hasn't started for 30 minutes, nonetheless it is not because of distractions of all kinds, one can learn about his biorhythm and achieve later with greater momentum what needs some rest in order to be carried out most effectively. Until then, one uses the time to regenerate/rejuvenate.
Of course, panic is not good for anybody, and should be dealt with in situations of steady commitment & repetitive tasks. A snack is also a common distraction, however, in times of intense study, a health-conscious snack can especially boost serotonin levels in the brain, making for better, smoother concentration and study, switching from one subject to another rapidly.
Everything has to be taken according to circumstance, by one's personal expertise of his own lifestyle & accomplishments.

The Internet Researcher Association!

chris the cynic said...

Just because you don't doesn't mean others are equally ignorant.

Here's a hint: "playing the devil's advocate" is not synonymous with "completely missing the point." In fact, to play the devil's advocate well you have to get the point, demonstrate that you got the point, and still provide a valid counterargument.

briscuit said...

yeah~I've been working on my dogs for vacuuming

briscuit said...

I must be well rounded cause I have a bit of all these in me

Hezakiah said...

wenzel dehn said...

MouseOfPluto said...

Though I'm sure they're talking about Animal Crossing here...

The Cleaner said...

I AM DEFINATELY THE "CLEANER."

Tjitze de Boer said...

Sometimes I'd like to imagine all the things I'd get done if I had minions.

DAA said...

OMG! I do pretty much all of them!!!

mfb said...

All of them public servants!

Jumana said...

The cleaner, the panicker, the list maker, the internet researcher and the Prepetuator! T_T

Elad Stern said...

If by writing this comment, you have refreshed your head, taking a braking from your work or study load, I am glad you now have a refreshed mind full with mental power to continue your tasks. Don't procrastinate!

Angela said...

Lol, that's because I want someone to make one ; )

Farmer said...

Pretty funny, and I've done almost all of these. If any of you are really struggling with this check out "the Now Habit" it helped me a lot.

Bama-Bret Hansen said...

Seriously Wondering If these are more fazes of procrastination.....

AA said...

Celine Fjeldheim said...
