In this post-millennial era, different generations have different values and ways of living. Millennials most notably tend to work less than older generations do. This degradation that happens in the millennial age motivated the researchers to acquire indepth portrayal about how academic perfectionism works within the millennial age, particularly among adolescents. This study used the qualitative methodology and phenomenological approach. The study began with the distribution of standardized Hewitt and Flett’s Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (MPS) questionnaire to several high schools in Malang. The number of subjects was shortlisted and invited to participate in the further in-depth interview were two students who obtained the highest MPS scores and were aligned with the researchers' criteria. Prior to the interview, the researchers compiled several questions based on the Hewitt and Flett’s (1991) perfectionism theory, which consists of three dimensions: Self-Oriented, Socially Prescribed, and Other-Oriented. The researchers analyzed the data through Miles and Huberman data analysis procedures.
