Abstract

Perfectionism is generally defined as a personality trait in which a person is strictly adhering to the standards ones have while putting importance to fulfill impossibly high standards. As a tremendous number of people possessing this trait, perfectionism has received considerable interest which made its definition gradually evolves. Starting from the view of perfectionism as a unidimensional and pathological construct, currently perfectionism is commonly viewed as a multidimensional construct which covers both intrapersonal and interpersonal facets of an individual. However, the fact that perfectionism is largely influenced by culture is still under-researched, especially in a collectivist country like Indonesia. In addition, Indonesian students are prevalent for being a perfectionist where it interferes with their academic and career functioning. Therefore, the presence of measurement of perfectionism which adheres to the current theoretical development is crucial in the Indonesian context. This paper explains the development of Indonesian Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (IMPS), where we found that the IMPS is reliable and valid in terms of construct validity and have representative items for a multidimensional perfectionism.
