PSY 216 Literature Review Template What is the title of the article? Provide a citation for the article in APA format. Egan, S. J., Piek, J. P., & Dyck, M. J. (2015). Positive and Negative Perfectionism and the Big Five Personality Factors. Behaviour Change, 32 (02), 104-113. doi:10.1017/bec.2015.3 What is the purpose of the article and how does the purpose relate to personality development? I believe the purpose of the article is to further understand the trait of being a perfectionist and both the positive and negative aspects of perfectionism. This may relate to personality development because it is related to psychopathology which studies people’s mental disorders as well as the genetic, biological or other causes of this personality trait. What is the hypothesis of the study? In other words, what claims do the authors make in the article? The hypothesis of the study seems to be athletes have lower negative perfectionism traits than other clinical groups of people that may be studied as well. Also, that negative perfectionism will be correlated with extraversion negatively.
