The Adaptation and Validation of Sport Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale-2 for Turkish Athletes
The Adaptation and Validation of Sport Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale-2 for Turkish Athletes

Özge ERCAN [1] , Alper Cavit KABAKÇI [2]


This study aims to adapt the “Sport-Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale-2” form developed by Gotwals and Dunn (2009) to Turkish culture. The study group consists of 612 adult athletes selected by appropriate sampling method. For adaptation to Turkish, experts opinion have been applied for the validity of the language. After validation of the language, Confirmatory Factor Analysis has been used to determine the model fit of the scale in Turkish culture. It has been found that the model fit indexes of the six-factor structure of the scale are good and at acceptable level. The internal consistency coefficient of the scale is 0.88; and for sub-dimensions they are 0.85, 0.90, 0.92, 0.85, 0.85 and 0.89 respectively. As a conclusion, it has been found that “Sport-Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale-2” is a valid and reliable measurement tool that can be used to examine the factors related to burnout syndrome in perfectionism of Turkish athletes.
