There are currently many measures of perfectionism. These measures contain a different number of subscales and, most of the time, the subscales have different names. This presents a confusing situation to researchers unfamiliar with the perfectionism literature who want to conduct research on perfectionism in sport, dance, and exercise. The aim of the present chapter, then, is to provide clear recommendations for how to measure perfectionism in these domains. To do so, I first introduce readers to the conceptual foundations for these recommendations – the two-factor model and sub-domain-specific models of perfectionism. I then review general and sport-specific measures of perfectionism. In each case I note key features, offer critique, and recommendations in regards to their general use. I close the chapter by discussing which subscales offer best, sub-optimal, and inappropriate proxies of the two-factor higher-order model of perfectionism in sport, dance, and exercise.
