Imagery links the self and the subconscious, portrayal and interpretation of imagery are efficient means of understanding self and heart. In this study, animal imagery as a representative of the imagery and qualitative research methods are used to explore the inner link of animal imagery and procrastination, as well as to examine the feasibility and effectiveness of the image treatment to alleviate the procrastination behavior. The study invites232undergraduates and graduate students to fill the animal imagery of procrastination behavior questionnaire, analyzes the animal imagery of procrastination (including phenomenon of delays, object of delays, self in delays, the specific delays behavior), summaries the symbolic meaning of a variety of animal imagery and the corresponding difference between animal imagery to varying degrees and reasons. On this basis, eight subjects are recruited to participate in a training group composed of painting treatment and imagery dialogue, so that the subjects in the process of painting and dialoguing with imagery reveal a better understanding of the attitude of the procrastination, alleviate the emotion in delays, and reduce delay behavior. By qualitative analysis of the work and group training process, test the effectiveness of imagery painting group training on the delay behavior intervention. The study found that:animal imagery of phenomenon of delays, self in delays and specific delays behavior has concentration. Animal imagery of different delay object shows object-specific. The high delay and low delay group differences in the animal imagery of various types of delay objects and self in delays. The symbolic meaning of animal imagery of self in delays and specific delay behavior reflects reason and situation of procrastination. Animal imagery of different reasons of delays proves that differences as well. Therefore, the animal imagery can be used to represent different object, varying degrees, different causes of procrastination, and its symbolic meaning particularity of context. Image painting group training results show that subjects paint animal imagery in line with the rules concluded from the first part of study. Image painting and image dialogue can make impact on subjects in the group training situations. Overall delay and specific delay behavior of subjects have decrease during the training period and after the end of training. Group trainings effectively relieve the emotion in delays, clarify the attitude to delay, comb the understanding of delay, but a limited role in the practical action to change the delay.
