Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale – Stöber (1998)

In this study we used the shorter version composed by 36 items Bos et al. J Pers Soc Psychol. To analyse the contribution of each item to the scale internal consistency, Cronbach’s alpha coefficients for the total scale, excluding each item were calculated and compared with the total scale multidiemnsional.

Stumpf H, Parker WD.

Perfectionism and the cortisol response to psychosocial stress in men. The FMPS and other self-report questionnaires were administered to a community sample of 1 st year university students O “perfil de estados de humor”: The DA dimension reflects the individual doubts about one’s abilities.

The correlation coefficients between each item and corrected total score ranged from. In the four and six component solutions the PS a more adaptive multidkmensional showed significant and positive associations with maladaptive dimensions and no significant association with O. The FMPS temporal stability was analysed by the test-retest score correlation perfectiojism a month.

Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale: the portuguese version

Conversely, PE was significantly and positively associated with PA. A factorial perfecctionism of the responses given by our sample revealed two factors: Literature findings have indicated that perfectionism may be characterized by positive and negative dimensions, differently linked to various adaptive and maladaptive processes and outcomes.


The inclusion of the O dimension was not consensual. The cost of being perfect: The FMPS normative characteristics and inter-correlations are shown in table 3. We decided to maintain the items from the O dimension because there were modest but significant negative correlations between O and some of the negative perfectionism scales. The perfectionism model of binge eating: Monte Carlo PCA for parallel analysis [computer software]. The CM dimension reflects excessive concerns about failure and the fear of negative evaluation from others.

Sfale mean age was of Aust NZ J Peerfectionism. A multieimensional component analysis with Varimax rotation was performed and based on the Scree plot, two robust factorial structures were found four and six factors.

Twenty four items presented higher coefficients than. London and New York: There are many studies about the FMPS psychometric characteristics using university students and the higher women prevalence may reflect the Portuguese universities tendency.

Profile of mood states. The O dimension reflects the excessive importance given to orderliness. To analyse the extent to which each perfectionizm was a good construct measure, we performed correlations between each item and the total scale excluding the item. However, excluding the solution founded by Khawaja and Armstrong 26 in an Australian sample, the factors order of appearance in all of these studies was different from the one we found.

Preliminary qualitative item analyses included the thinking aloud methodology with pilot participants and an experts panel. The FMPS factorial analyses indicated two robust factorial structures: Educational and Industrial Testing Service; Originally, the scale included six subscales: The dimensions of perfectionism. Factor 4 is formed by PS items and also includes the 5 item from CM. Pearson’s or Spearman’s correlation coefficients were used to test variables associations. The Pearson correlation between the two MPS froet total scores was high.


Psychometric properties of the Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale in a clinical anxiety disorder sample. These lead to two new perfectonism Perfectionism in the self and social contexts: However, the Scree plot analysis showed a clear break after the fourth component Figure 1. Since the early ‘s perfectionism has been conceptualized as a multidimensional construct, with intrapersonal and interpersonal dimensions 1,2. Perfectionism has scake a topic of increased interest in recent years.

Although having found these slight differences, the results from these studies support the internal validity of the four factor solution, which is psychometrically robust and was replicated in different cultures.

The Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale revisited: The four factor solution explained Factor 3 includes all the Organization O items. Data for this study were drawn from an ongoing research on Perfectionism and Stress. Results Reliability analyses The correlation coefficients between each item and corrected total score ranged from. In future research it would be important to study FMPS properties in non-college student samples, and in clinical samples, and further investigate how well the scale performs in distinguishing positive and negative processes and outcomes.

The PS svale reflects the setting of high standards, the striving to attain it and the contingent self-evaluation multidimensioanl on the achievement. Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale: This dimension is included in the Frost et al.

Dimensions of perfectionism across the anxiety disorders.

One of the limitations of our study is that the sample only included university students.
