Parker, Wayne D.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v11 n4 p173-82 Sum 2000

Contrary to common beliefs, results indicate that perfectionism is not greater in the gifted and that striving for perfection is more likely to stimulate healthy achievement needs than to be associated with personal or academic maladjustment.
