What is Task Avoidance


Task Avoidance is a counter-productive behavior which can be recognized in all spheres of life, including education, business, household, etc. The sense of this problematic behavior is that people consider some tasks as aversive (boring, frustrating, unpleasant, etc.) – in a result they tend to reject or postpone doing that task (or at least to work at it not so hard and diligently as they really can). Task avoidance can appear because some level of whether physical or mental discomfort is connected to performance of a task. 

For example, in educational practice, some pupils may feel fear against some tasks as “they don’t know how to do this work”, or they don’t feel a sufficient level of self-reliance, so with a help of task avoidance they protect their self-esteem – the teachers need to provide such students with a sound support and guidance to convince them of the fact that they are not actually “stupid”, but capable of doing any tasks. One of the ways to beat the task avoidance in business or daily life is to overcome underlying task aversiveness (for more facts on this you may see the article What is Task Aversiveness).
