Abstract

Psychological approaches to determining the types of perfectionism in adults and adolescents are considered in the article; the criteria underlying such typologies are analyzed. The psychological features of perfectionism in adolescence are described. The purpose of the research is to investigate the typology of academic perfectionism in adolescents, in the measure of destructive influence, level of academic success and emotional problems. In the study the following psychodiagnostic techniques were used: Questionnaire by A. A. Rean (diagnostic the motivational tendencies for success or avoiding failure), Children-Adolescents Perfectionism Scale by P. Hewitt and G. Flett (indicators of general perfectionism), Depression Beck Scale (adolescents version) and Multidimensional Anxiety Scale by E. E. Malkina. Also, for each student, the average level of academic achievement was determined (the average mark for all school subjects on a 12-point rating scale). The analysis of correlation between the level of general perfectionism in adolescents and the level of academic success, the degree of anxiety and depression manifestations, dominance of motivational tendencies for success or avoidance of failure is done. Using cluster analysis, the typology of perfectionism is developed in adolescence, which takes into account the following criteria: “avoiding failure – hope for success”; “high level of success – low level of success”; “no emotional problems – high emotional problems”; “high level of perfectionism – low level of perfectionism”. It is established that the first type of perfectionism (successful anxiety and depression perfectionist) includes adolescents with a high level of perfectionism, equally expressed motivational tendencies for success and avoidance of failure, high level of academic achievement, high level of anxiety and depressive manifestations. The second type (successful constructive perfectionist) represents adolescents with an average level of perfectionism, a prevailing motivational tendency to success, a high level of academic achievement and average level of anxiety and depression. The third type of adolescents (unsuccessful anxiety-depressive perfectionist) have a high level of perfectionism, a motivational tendency to avoid failure, high level of anxious and depressive manifestations and low level of academic achievement. And, finally, the fourth type includes adolescents with a low level of perfectionism, equally expressed motivational tendencies for success or avoidance of failure, less expressed anxious and depressive manifestations and an average level of academic success.
