I think perfectionism or a fear of failure could be the reason for her procrastination. Does she posses either of those?

This is exactly to do with the brain. A recent study has found that the procrastinators have a larger amygdala, which is the brain’s main control center for fear and emotions. The study clearly spoke about how different are the brains of a doer and a procrastinator. That is why I asked, if she is a perfectionist or has a fear of failure.

I don’t think she is either but if asked for a choice she is more of a perfectionist. However, I was interested it knowing if the brain plays some role in this.
