All correlation coefficients were higher than. However, excluding the solution founded by Khawaja and Armstrong 26 in an Australian sample, the factors order of appearance in all of these studies was different from the one we found.

Psychometric properties of the Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale with Australian adolescent girls. The original version revealed good reliability alpha: To compare two independent groups on continuous variables we used Student t-tests. Another study 11 showed that personality characteristics, such as a self-demand trait a construct related to perfectionism, as perfectionists demand perfection of themselves, and self-imposed standards in salient domains that are personally demanding interfere with intestinal functioning, being associated with irritable bowel syndrome.

Longitudinal study on perfectionism and sleep disturbance. 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.

The PS perefctionism reflects the setting of high standards, the striving to attain it and the contingent self-evaluation based on the achievement. 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. One of the limitations of our study is that the sample only included university students. Additionally, transcultural studies may be conducted in order to investigate ethnic differences and sociocultural factors that might modulate this trait development.

The four factors showed a good internal consistency, as indicated by the Cronbach alpha, ranging from. With approximately million speakers, Portuguese is one of the most spoken languages in the world. The CM dimension reflects excessive concerns about failure and the fear of negative evaluation from others.

Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale: This conception of perfectionism led to zcale development of two of the most widely used perfectionism measures, the Multidimensional Perfectionism Scales, one from Frost et al.

This suggests this scale is a robust instrument to assess perfectionism, in several clinical and research settings as well as in transcultural studies. The Profile of Mood States. Pers Soc Psych Rev.

O “perfil de estados de humor”: Oxford Medical Publications; How to cite this article. The great majority of the students were single ; Spearman’s correlation coefficients of each item ranged from. To ensure comparability between studies we provide data for FMPS total score either considering the items from the O dimension, either not.

To analyze the psychometric properties of the Portuguese version of the Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale.

An investigation of the factor structure of the Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale on the basis of the Australian population. The scale factor structure was studied sca,e the principal components method, with Varimax rotation and the Cattell’s Scree plot.


Another limitation was the reduced number of males implying this gender low representativeness. The validation of the FMPS Portuguese version offers a good and useful instrument for research and clinical purposes and expands the opportunity to investigate the adaptive and maladaptive aspects of perfectionism in Portuguese speaking populations. The correlation perefctionism between each item and corrected total score ranged from.

Results revealed that 29 items contributed significantly for the scale’s internal consistency.

Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale: the portuguese version

The four factor solution The four component solution explained The Portuguese version revealed good psychometric properties 5. Only the items from the O dimension had a total overlap on the six and four factor solutions.

Perfectionism, theory, research and treatment. Data for this study were drawn from an ongoing research on Perfectionism and Stress. The scale test-retest reliability suggested a good temporal stability with a test-retest correlation of. The principal component analyses, using Monte Carlo PCA for parallel analyses confirmed the six factor solution. Perfectionism has been a topic of increased interest in recent years. The FMPS temporal stability was analysed by the test-retest score correlation after a month.

In which respects to the six factor solution, the inter-correlations between dimensions scores were moderate and ranged from. Prior to the principal components analysis PCAthe data suitability for factor analysis was assessed.

However, the Scree plot analysis showed a clear break after the fourth component Figure 1. In this study we used the shorter version composed by 36 items Bos et al.
