Few IS studies have examined the phenomenon of cyberloafing, i.e., nonwork-related Internet use by employees during work time. This in-progress research proposes to take an individual trait approach and investigates the impact of general traits, like the “Big Five,” as well as domain-specific ones, such as computer playfulness. It is hypothesized that while the Big Five will be significant predictors of cyberloafing, computer playfulness, as a domain-specific trait, will explain significant incremental variance above and beyond the Big Five. Expected contributions are discussed.
