In this article the study conducted showed in both groups, higher negative perfectionism was associated with higher neuroticism and lower agreeableness (Egan, Piek, and Dyck, 2015). This was a correlation study where five different assessments were used to measure and collect data. They are as follows: (1) The Positive and Negative Perfectionism Scale (PANPS).
