Study: Some People Are Too Lazy To Telecommute

(Undated)  --  A new study shows some people may be too lazy to telecommute.

Social scientists call it "cyberslacking."  Researchers at the University of Calgary studied personality traits and managed to identify those most likely to be cyberslackers.  Procrastinators were found to be more likely to waste time instead of working.  

Additionally, those who were dissatisfied with their job were also prone to cyberslacking.  About 18-percent of telecommuters admitted to doing things other than working while they were supposed to be "on the clock."  

The study is published in the journal Computers and Human Behavior.
