Multidimensional Perfectionism in Middle School Age Gifted Students: A Comparison to Peers from the General Cohort.
LoCicero, Kenneth A.; Ashby, Jeffrey S.
Roeper Review, v22 n3 p182-85 Apr 2000
Levels of multidimensional perfectionism were compared in gifted (N=83) and regular (N=112) middle school students. Results indicated that gifted students had significantly higher standards scores, a measure of adaptive perfectionism, and significantly lower discrepancy scores, a measure of maladaptive perfectionism. Results suggest that gifted students' higher levels of perfectionism do not usually lead to distress or maladjustment. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
