Valid and reliable instruments are required in order to study perfectionism appropriately. With this in mind, three studies will be presented that describe the development and initial validation of a new instrument designed to measure multidimensional performance perfectionism for use in sport (Perfect Performance Scale-Sport, PPS-S). The instrument is based on Hewitt and Flett’s (1991) model of perfectionism and includes self-oriented, socially prescribed, and other-oriented performance perfectionism. The new dimensions encapsulate the features of Hewitt and Flett’s dimensions but are focused on athletic performance, rather than life generally. The three studies outline item generation and refinement, exploratory, confirmatory and exploratory-confirmatory examination of factor structure, and initial assessment of construct validity. The findings of the three studies provide initial evidence for the reliability and validity of the PPS-S and suggest that the instrument is worthy of further scrutiny and validation.
