Abstract/Description: This study examined how different perfectionist facets (adaptive and maladaptive) are related to self-efficacy and perceived performance. The study consisted of 145 college athletes between 18-24 years old. The sample comprised both varsity and club athletes from individual and team sports. All participants have completed a questionnaire packet, which included the Sport-MPS-2, the Physical Self-Efficacy Scale, and the Perceived Personal Performance Questionnaire. A model postulating the relationship between these variables was constructed and a path analysis was conducted to test the study's hypotheses. Results of the path analysis were inconclusive. Multiple regression analyses were then conducted to tests the hypotheses. The findings of the MR analysis suggests that even though the dimensions of perfectionism are significantly correlated, only adaptive perfectionism was a significant predictor of physical self-efficacy (PSE) and perceived performance (PPPQ). The relationship between PPPQ and PSE was not significant and thus neither of these variables mediated their respective relationships. The results conclude that the two different dimensions of perfectionism predict sport specific variables differently.
