AbstractThrough validation of the Adaptive/Maladaptive Perfectionism Scale (AMPS) (Rice & Preusser, 2002), this study examined the concept of perfectionism among Chinese elementary school students in Hong Kong. A total of 599 students from fourth to sixth grades with ages ranged from 9 to 13 years were recruited on a voluntary basis and with parental consent. They completed a Chinese translation of the AMPS consisting of 27 items. The scale taps into four dimensions of perfectionism, namely: Sensitivity to Mistakes, Contingent Self-Esteem, Compulsiveness, and Need for Admiration. Confirmatory factor analysis was employed. The results supported the AMPS subscales with moderate to high internal consistencies. However, four items were subsequently deleted due to lack of significance. The findings provide methodological and practical implications for future investigations of perfectionism among Chinese students, including those with gifts and talents - a sub-group within which perfectionism is often an issue© 2011 International Research Association for Talent Development and Excellence.
