For some varieties of perfectionism, the link is clear.

Socially prescribed perfectionism--believing that others will value you only if you are perfect--has been associated with depression and other problems, including suicide. Socially prescribed perfectionists, he notes, tend to feel that "the better I do, the better I'm expected to do.

There are also clear problems with other-oriented perfectionism, the tendency to demand perfection from friends, family, co-workers and others. It can be particularly damaging for intimate relationships, says Hewitt.

For self-oriented perfectionism--an internally motivated desire to be perfect--the picture is less clear. Studies by Hewitt and Flett and their colleagues, as well as other research groups, have found links to mental health problems, particularly eating disorders.

The PSPS rates three aspects of perfectionistic self-presentation: Hewitt and Flett have found that the PSPS predicts psychological distress above and beyond what is predicted by their original measure of perfectionism, the Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale.

As a practicing psychologist who frequently treats perfectionists, Hewitt avoids focusing on high personal standards.
