PERFECTIONISM
Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (FMPS)
This inventory consists of 35 questions measuring four sub-scales of perfectionism:
– Concern over mistakes and doubts about actions
– Excessive concern with parents' expectations and evaluation
– Excessively high personal standards
– Concern with "precision, order, and organization"
Setting excessively high standards is the most prominent feature of perfectionism, accompanied by tendencies for overly critical evaluations of one's own behavior, expressed in over concern for mistakes and uncertainty regarding actions and beliefs.
This test is appropriate for people 15 years and older.

Please answer the following questions in relation to how much they apply to you. There are no right or wrong answers. Do not spend too much time on any one statement.
