Abstract:   (10705 Views)
The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between attachment styles and perfectionism. One hundred and seventy students (97 girls, 73 boys) were participated in this study. Participants were asked to complete the Adult Attachment Inventory (AAI) and the Positive and Negative Perfectionism Scale (PANPS). Analysis of the data involved both descriptive and inferential statistics including means, standard deviations, t-test, correlation coefficient, and analysis of regression. The results revealed that attachment styles were associated with perfectionism. Secure attachment style was positively associated with positive perfectionism and negatively related to negative perfectionism. Insecure attachment styles (avoidant, ambivalence) were negatively associated with positive perfectionism and positively related to negative perfectionism. Analysis of the data revealed that positive perfectionism was predicted by secure attachment style, while negative perfectionism was predicted by insecure attachment styles. The quality of perfectionism is influenced by attachment styles through “internal working models” and mechanisms such as “affect regulation”, “repression”, “denial”, and “idealization”.
