The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between perfectionism and psychological wellbeing. For this reason, 548 people completed the questionaire through social media and pen and paper. The simple and multiple regression model, the Pearson correlation, and the independent samples t-test were used to test the hypotheses. Correlational analysis showed a strong negative relationship between global perfectionism and psychological wellbeing. Linear regression showed a fair predictive capacity of perfectionism on the levels of psychological wellbeing with concern over mistakes and doubts about actions with greater predictive force, constituting thus a better model for explaining psychological wellbeing. The multiple linear regression model showed that age also played a role in psychological wellbeing. People who were older have higher levels of subjective wellbeing. Independent t-test analysis showed that there were no significant differences in gender regarding perfectionism and psychological wellbeing, whereas people who went to therapy or counselling showed significantly higher levels of perfectionism. The study findings are coherent with theoretical and empirical data that higher levels of perfectionism are associated with lower levels of emotional wellbeing.
