Growing up Perfect: Perfectionism, Problematic Internet Use, and Career Indecision in Emerging Adults
Lehmann, Ilana S.; Konstam, Varda
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n2 p155-162 Spr 2011
Among emerging adults who are career indecisive, perfectionism and problematic Internet use (PIU) are underdeveloped areas of inquiry. The authors examined the relationship between perfectionism and PIU to measure their contributions to career indecision. The full model was significant, yielding an R[superscript 2] of 0.46 (p less than 0.0001). PIU accounted for the majority of variance in career indecision (adjusted R[superscript 2] = 0.32). Career indecision was also related to maladaptive but not adaptive perfectionism. Counseling implications are discussed.
