R. Slaney «Almost Perfect Scale» was translated into Russian and adapted initially for the Russian sample. Two versions of the scale with good compliance and internal consistency and acceptable levels of external and construct validity were obtained. To further test the psychometric properties of the questionnaire requires further investigation. The results are generally consistent with these authors' questionnaire and other researchers in this area, although there are some important differences. Factor structure of the scale, resulting in the Russian sample, largely coincides with the original, but there is a new factor, extending the ideas of several components of perfectionism. Assumptions about the adaptive and maladaptive scales of the questionnaire partially confirmed, but we could not get the expected second-order factors (adaptive and maladaptive perfectionism).
Keywords: perfectionism, adaptive perfectionism, maladaptive perfectionism, standards, procedures, failure, procrastination, perfectionist anxiety, relationships, aggression, hostility, anger, neuroticism, conscientiousness, harmony, scale.
