Perfectionism and perceived parenting style among university students

Alvan, Gizem
In this study, the relationship between perceived parenting styles and perfectionism was investigated among male and female university students. Two questionnaires, namely, Almost Perfect Scale-Revised (APS-R) Turkish version and Parenting Styles Scales were administered to 530 (245 males and 285 females) undergraduate students of METU. The results of two separate multivariate analysis of variance conducted for mothers and fathers revealed that those who perceived their mothers and fathers as authoritative and authoritarian had significantly higher maladaptive perfectionism scores than those who perceived them as permissive/indulgent. The results also yielded that those who perceived their fathers as authoritative had significantly higher adaptive perfectionism scores than those who perceived their fathers as authoritarian. No gender differences were found between female and male students.
