This shows historical significance. How does the view of personality in this article compare with historical views of personality? A: There are several problems with this experiment, however, with clarifying the results of the relationship between positive and negative perfectionism and personality from the studies reviewed. The studies done by Dunkley and colleagues (e.g. Dunkley et al., 1997; Dunkley et al., 2004) used the DAS as the measure of perfectionism, and while the DAS is thought to be primarily a measure of negative perfectionism, it is hard to interpret results in terms of negative and positive perfectionism, as the DAS was not designed to measure perfectionism or to distinguish types of perfectionism. While a number of studies have utilized the FMPS and HMPS to investigate personality, these measures are not specifically designed to make a distinction between negative and positive perfectionism, unlike specific measures such as PANPS. ( Egan, S. J., Piek, J. P., & Dyck, M. J. (2015)) 6. What type of research design is used in the study? What instruments or measures did researchers use to collect data? A The type of research design is used in the study is self-report questionnaires. The instruments or measures did the researchers use to collect data were: the Positive and Negative Perfectionism Scale (PANPS) , the Beck Depression Inventory, the NEO Personality Inventory-Revised, and the Brief Symptom Inventory . 7. Do you think the research in this article was conducted in an ethical manner ? Why or why not? In relation to the article, how have ethical considerations in personality psychology research changed over the years? . A: Yes, I do think the research in this article was done in an ethical manner. All participants completed an information and consent form and the research was approved by the Curtin University Ethics Committee. The athletes returned completed questionnaires via mail, and the clinical group returned questionnaires at the clinic. ( Egan, S. J., Piek, J. P., & Dyck, M. J. (2015)).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
