The present paper argues that there is both a positive and a negative form of perfectionism, and that they can be differentiated in terms of acceptance. The basic argument is that there is nothing unhealthy or dysfunctional about the striving for perfection as such—perfectionism, however, becomes dysfunctional when this striving for perfection turns into a demand for perfection, defined as an inability to accept being less than perfect.
Striving for excellence is an admirable goal. Adaptive or healthy perfectionism can drive ambition and lead to extraordinary accomplishments. High-achieving people often show signs of perfectionism.
Perfectionism and Acceptance
Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. Hamachek, D. Psychodynamics of Normal and Neurotic Perfectionism. Psychology Savannah, Ga. ABSTRACT: The present study investigated the relationship between parental conditional regard, perfectionism, subjective well-being and self-esteem, and the role of perfectionism as a mediator in the relationship between parental conditional regard and both subjective well-being and self-esteem. The results showed positive links between parental conditional regard and perfectionism, negative links between parental conditional regard and both subjective well-being and self-esteem and negative links between perfectionism and both subjective well-being and self-esteem. While perfectionism was a partial mediator between parental conditional regard and self-esteem, perfectionism was not a mediator between parental conditional regard and subjective well-being.
Perfectionism , in psychology , is a broad personality style characterized by a person's concern with striving for flawlessness and perfection and is accompanied by critical self-evaluations and concerns regarding others' evaluations. Recent data show that perfectionistic tendencies are on the rise among recent generations of young people. Perfectionists strain compulsively and unceasingly toward unattainable goals, and measure their self-worth by productivity and accomplishment. Perfectionists tend to be harsh critics of themselves when they fail to meet their expectations. Hamachek in argued for two contrasting types of perfectionism, classifying people as tending towards normal perfectionism or neurotic perfectionism.

From a larger pool, 36 university students were selected based on their scores on the Standards and Order subscale of the Almost Perfect Scale and on the Penn State Worry Scale. Participants responded to open-ended questions eliciting their definitions of perfectionism and their views on its effects on various domains of their lives. Consistent with early theoretical work e. The results also suggest that the constructs of standards and order represent the positive dimension and the construct of worry a negative dimension. Discussed are the results and their implications for mental health counseling and further research.
