- In order to investigate the impact of perfectionism on academic achievement of Chinese university students, this study adopted the method of variable-centered and person-centered analyses. The Chinese Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (CFMPS), which includes positive perfectionism (PP) and negative perfectionism (NP) was performed on 291 college students from two universities, and their academic achievement was acquired from the school deans’ offices. The variable-centered analysis results indicate that positive perfectionism prediction results are positive; person-centered analysis results indicate that moderate PP/low NP is the most common, accounting for 30.2%. In terms of academic achievement, high PP/moderate NP, moderate PP/low NP, and moderate PP/moderate NP perform better than other types.
