Objectives: The present study was carried out with the aim of assessing the prediction of procrastination using meta-cognitive beliefs. Method: 199 students (126 female and 73 male) from different schools of Shiraz University were selected using random cluster-multistage sampling, and completed the Meta-cognition Questionnaire-30, General Procrastination Scale and Decisional Procrastination Scale. Data were analyzed using stepwise multiple regression method. Results: The results showed that uncontrollability and danger (p<0.001), cognitive confidence (p<0.01), and cognitive self-consciousness (p<0.001) of meta-cognition beliefs could predict behavioral procrastination. Also, uncontrollability and danger (p<0.001), and cognitive self-consciousness (p<0.001) of meta-cognition beliefs could predict decisional procrastination. Conclusion: Self- regulatory executive function model is useful in the prediction of procrastination in behavior and decision making as emotional-behavioral disorders.
