The sample consisted of 331 undergraduate students from 35 departments of Middle East Technical University. Turkish version of Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (MPS, Oral, 1999) and Depressive Attribution Style Questionnaire (DASQ, Aydin, 1988a) were used to collect data. Factor analysis was employed to the MPS scores to investigate the dimensions of perfectionism as perceived by the participants. MANOVA was conducted to examine a possible relationship between perfectionism and helpless explanatory style as a function of gender. Results of the factor analysis revealed four factors, termed self-oriented, socially prescribed, other-oriented perfectionism, and perfectionist expectations. With regard to the results of the MANOVA no significant associations emerged between perfectionism and helpless explanatory style as a function of gender.
