Dimensions of Perfectionism and Procrastination
Considerable recent research in psychology has focused on the role of perfectionism in personal and social adjustment. Research in our laboratory has shown that perfectionism is linked to such negative outcomes as anxiety, depression, suicide, and marital problems (Flett & Hewitt, 1992; Flett, Hewitt, Blankstein, & Mosher, 1991; Flett, Hewitt, Blankstein, & O’Brien, 1991; Hewitt & Flett, 1991a, b; 1993a,b; Hewitt, Flett, & Turnbull-Donovan, 1992). This research has increased our general understanding of the perfectionism construct and it has heightened our appreciation of the relevance of perfectionism to problems in daily life.
