The original scale was translated by two Portuguese psychiatrists MH Azevedo; A Macedo dominating both languages and who had large experience on the translation of psychopathology assessment instruments. The correlation coefficients between each item and corrected total score ranged from. An unexpected result was the positive significant association between PS 4 and 6 factors and NA Table 3.

The DA dimension reflects the individual doubts about one’s abilities. We decided to maintain the items from the O dimension perfeftionism there were modest but significant negative correlations between O and some of the negative perfectionism scales. The FMPS temporal stability was analysed by the test-retest score correlation after a month. Longitudinal study on perfectionism and sleep disturbance.

Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale: the portuguese version

Monte Carlo PCA for parallel analysis [computer software]. The two factorial structures of four and six zcale of the Portuguese version of Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale replicate the results from different authors, with different samples and cultures.


Perfectionism has been a topic of increased interest in recent years. This English version was discussed by three English-speaking scape in psychological assessment. Data for this study were drawn from an ongoing research on Perfectionism and Stress. The handbook of psychological testing.

Considering the importance of research comparability, we decided to explore the two factorial solutions. The four factor solution The four component solution explained When the exclusion of the item corresponded to a lower alpha than the one obtained for the total scale, we concluded that it contributed to the scale internal consistency. Considering the four factor solution, the inter-correlations between dimensions scores were moderate and ranged from.

Given the clinical and research importance of this scale, the purpose of the present study is to develop the FMPS Portuguese version and analyze its psychometric characteristics. PCA explained between 2. These experts also analyzed the linguistic and conceptual equivalence.

The Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale revisited: Dimensions of perfectionism across the anxiety disorders. These differences may be related to cultural differences and sample characteristics e. Sherry SB, Hall A. The four factors showed a good internal consistency, as indicated by the Cronbach alpha, ranging from. Although having found these slight differences, the results from these studies support the internal validity of the four factor solution, which is psychometrically robust and was replicated in different cultures.

A hierarquical structural analysis of perfectionism and its relation to other personality characteristics. Factor 3 includes all the Organization O items. Materials and methods Participants and procedures Data for this study were drawn from an ongoing research on Perfectionism and Stress.


The six factor solution The six component solution explained Acknowledgments The co-operation of the students is gratefully acknowledged. Since the early ‘s perfectionism has been conceptualized as a multidimensional construct, with intrapersonal and interpersonal dimensions 1,2.

An evaluation of the factor structure of the Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale. Services on Demand Journal. The four factor solution was similar to the structure found by other autors ,26 showing an aggregation of the CM and DA dimensions and of the PE and PC dimensions.

J Pers Soc Psychol. The FMPS factorial analyses indicated two robust factorial structures: Psychometric multidimensioonal of the Spanish version of the Frost Multidimensional perfectionism scale in women.

The scale test-retest reliability suggested a good temporal stability with a test-retest correlation of. In fact, recent literature findings support that perfectionism and secondary appraisal are implicated in the stress response, by their association with cortisol increase and HPA axis activation The inter-correlations between dimensions and the total score were high and ranged from.

The cost of being perfect:
