You thrive on drama

Common among procrastinators, this type of lateness tends to occur when you need a boost to get you going. "These are people who cannot get themselves together until they get an adrenaline rush," psychologist Linda Sapadin, PhD, told WebMD.com. "They need to be under the gun to get themselves moving."

On-time trick: Accept responsibility by giving yourself some kind of “punishment” when you’re late: buy your friend’s movie ticket, for example.  Also, remove some of the unpredictability from your schedule by planning as much as you can in advance.  If you’re driving to a job interview, look up the directions the night before—not 30 seconds before you need to leave.

Do you give yourself extra time when you need to be somewhere at a certain time?
