Систематизация отечественных исследований и кросс-культурные перспективы изучения перфекционизма
The article deals with the range of perfectionism studies in Russia. The analysis of Russian publications on perfectionism draws up three major classes of research: foreign studies and their critique, adaptation of foreign questionnaires and the development of Russian instruments, the studies of perfectionism in association with other psychological phenomena and its influence on well-being. Results show that Russian social changes influence the directions in perfectionism research. On the one hand, the changes embrace higher social individuation, status and prestige in personal goal-setting, mass mediated external well-being standards and orientation toward achievement and success on a global scale. On the other hand, research dynamics underlines perfectionism ambivalence and methodological gaps in its investigations. Additionally, the article discusses cultural relevance of perfectionism, the rationale for cross-cultural approach and shortage of cross-cultural perfectionism studies regarding Russia. The results of present paper might be significant in terms of specifying perfectionism, developing multi-dimensional methodologies, drawing conclusions in cross-cultural research with Russian samples and identifying motivational factors in the context of globalized education.
