Abstract

The purpose of this research was to study the relationships among two dysfunctional forms of negative self-evaluation (comparative self-criticism and internalized self-criticism), adaptive perfectionism (high standards and orderliness), maladaptive perfectionism (discrepancy) and identity styles of first year university students. 196 university students completed The Levels of Self-Criticism (LOSC, Thompson and Zuroff, 2002).), the Almost Perfect Scale-Revised (APS-R; Slaney et al., 2001) and the revised Identity Style Inventory (ISI-3; Berzonsky, 1992). Expectedly, regression analyses showed that information-orientation identity style was positively predicted by high standards and internalized self-criticism. Normative-orientation identity style was positively predicted by order but unexpectedly, it was also predicted positively by high standards. Diffuse-avoidant identity style was negatively predicted by order and it was positively predicted by comparative self-criticism. In line with expectations, commitment was positively predicted by high standards and it was negatively predicted by discrepancy. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
