A study involving 109 secondary school gifted students found that 89% scored high on a quiz designed to detect negative perfectionism. Factors identified as possible dimensions of perfectionism included need for order, organization, need for approval of others, obsessive-compulsive demands on self, anxiety and excessive worry, indecision, and procrastination.
