Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the interaction effects of personal standards perfectionism and evaluative concerns perfectionism on work engagement. According to Gaudreau and Thompson's 2x2 model of perfectionism(2010)​, it can be divided into four dimensions following the high and low nature of each perfectionism. Each dimension has a different degree of internalization of perfectionistic standards, which affects an individual's job motivation. In order to collect data, 738 employees of the major companies in Korea were asked to measure a Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale(FMPS), Utrecth Work Engagement Scale(UWES-9). The interaction effects were verified through hierarchical multiple regression analysis and the interaction effects of personal standards perfectionism and evaluative concerns perfectionism on work engagement were identified. Pure evaluative concerns perfectionism was associated with lower work engagement than non-perfectionism and mixed perfectionism. In addition, the pure personal standards perfectionism was associated with higher work engagement than non-perfectionism, but had no significant difference with mixed perfectionism. So, future research is suggested that the need to verify the interaction effects of personal standards perfectionism and evaluative concerns perfectionism on objective variables.
