Gilman, Rich; Ashby, Jeffrey S.
Psychology in the Schools, v40 n6 p677-89 Nov 2003
This study reports that students who established high personal standards but nonetheless recognize their limitations reported significantly higher scores on a number of academic, intrapersonal, and interpersonal variables. However, the perceived inability for some students to consistently meet their high standards was significantly and negatively related to perceptions of school and family relationships, and greater emotional distress.
