Spearman’s correlation coefficients of each item ranged from. Temporal stability Spearman’s correlation coefficients of each item ranged from. After that it was retranslated by a bilingual person blind to the study. The four factor solution.

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 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.

There was complete adherence. This dimension is included in the Frost et al. The two factorial structures of four and six dimensions of the Portuguese version of Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale replicate the results from multidimensionap authors, with different samples and cultures.

The dimensions of perfectionism. To analyse the contribution of each item to the scale internal consistency, Cronbach’s alpha perfectionizm for the total scale, excluding each item were calculated and compared with the total scale alpha.


This factor also includes item 10, an scalle from the original PS component.

Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale: the portuguese version

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.

With approximately million speakers, Portuguese is one of the most spoken languages in the world. Additionally, transcultural studies may be conducted in order to investigate ethnic differences and sociocultural factors that might modulate this trait development. The PE and PC scales reflect the belief that one’s parents set very high goals and were overly critical.

Sherry SB, Hall A. The four factor solution The four component solution explained The FMPS total scale temporal stability was good. We decided to maintain the items from the O dimension because there were modest but significant negative correlations between O and some of the negative perfectionism scales. Introduction Perfectionism has been a topic of increased interest in recent years. The perfectionism model of binge eating: Aust NZ J Psychiat.

Factor 4 is formed by PS items and also includes the 5 item from CM. O “perfil de estados de humor”: The cost of being perfect: 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. The correlation coefficients between each item and corrected total score ranged from.


Perfectionism has been implicated in the stress generation and maintenance 3 and in psychological distress, such as depression 2anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorders 4eating disorders 5personality disorders 6sleep disturbances 7 and suicide 8.

The Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale. Perfectionism as a transdiagnostic process: The six factors were significant, as their eigenvalues 7. Although the four factor solution seemed an acceptable option, the six factor solution also showed to be good, and was confirmed by parallel analysis PA In this study we used the shorter version composed by 36 items Bos et al.

Materials and methods Participants and procedures Data for this study were drawn from an ongoing research on Perfectionism and Stress. The four factors showed a good internal consistency, as indicated by the Cronbach alpha, ranging from.
