Abstract

This paper explores the relationship between focus-solving thinking and academic procrastination of junior middle school students. It proposes a moderated mediation model to investigate the mediating effect of self-control on focus-solving thinking and academic procrastination and the moderating effect of psychological capital. A cluster sampling method was adopted in this study. In 2022, 1006 middle school students were investigated by a general social data questionnaire, focus-solving list, self-control scale, academic procrastination questionnaire and positive psychological capital questionnaire to analyze the influence mechanism of focus-solving thinking on academic procrastination. Self-control partially mediates between focus-solving thinking and academic procrastination, and the mediating effect is moderated by psychological capital. The moderating effect is more significant in junior high school students with a high level of psychological capital.
