Perfectionism is a characteristic commonly associated with gifted individuals. Much has been learned about perfectionism, but few studies have been conducted in Indonesian gifted and non-gifted students population.

The participants of the study were 169 students ages 18-20 (33 males,136 females) recruited from The Faculty of Psychology in Indonesia. All participants completed Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale translated into the Indonesian language.
