Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale

845 Shared Subjects

This inventory consists of 35 questions measuring four sub-scales of perfectionism: Concern over mistakes and doubts about actions. Excessive concern with parents’ expectations and evaluation. Excessively high personal standards. Concern with "precision, order and organization". Setting excessively high standards is the most prominent feature of perfectionism, accompanied by tendencies for overly critical evaluations of one’s own behavior, expressed in over concern for mistakes and uncertainty regarding actions and beliefs. This scale can be useful in highlighting that being highly perfectionist is in fact unhelpful. This test is appropriate for people 15 years and older and is especially appropriate for individuals with critical parents, anorexia, OCD traits or an anxiety disorder. Perfectionistic beliefs may be an important underlying cause of a range of psychopathologies.
