AbstractThis study investigates the cross-cultural construct validity of perfectionism using the Chinese translation of the Almost Perfect Scale-Revised (APS-R; Slaney, Mobley, Trippi, Ashby, & Johnson, 1996) with 509 Chinese high school students from Hong Kong. The factor structure of the Chinese APS-R and correlations between the APS-R subscales and measures of Depression, Satisfaction with Life, and Loneliness are examined. Participants are grouped into three clusters-adaptive and maladaptive perfectionists and nonperfectionists. A comparison of group means revealed that adaptive perfectionists reported higher Satisfaction with Life scores and lower Depression scores than the other two groups. This sample of Chinese students also reported higher Discrepancy scores compared to U.S. students' scores in previous studies. Similarities and differences in comparison to previous studies using U.S. participants are examined. Finally, the limitations of this study and implications for future research with Chinese participants are discussed. © 2009 Sage Publications.
