Profile Reports summarize the results of an individual administration, providing scores for all scales. Interpretive Reports provide detailed information about scores from a single administration, presented both numerically and graphically. An individual's scores are compared to those in the normative sample and elevations at the scale and subscale level are indicated.
The MPS is available in handscored, online, and software format. With the handscored format, respondents complete the assessment using MHS QuikScore™ Forms that easily calculate scores. With the online and software formats, you can instantly generate Profile Reports and Interpretive Reports.
Various studies have examined the link between the MPS subscales and clinical variables. Elevated scores on the perfectionism dimensions have been linked to depression, suicide, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, and procrastination. Because each subscale measures different perfectionism symptoms, different functioning difficulties are related to each subscale. Detailed data are presented in the MPS Technical Manual, including
Internal consistency and test-retest reliability
Convergent and discriminant validity
Gender and age effects
Correlations with other perfectionism measures and personality measures, including relationship to psychopathology and elements of the five-factor personality model, depression, and social desirability
