The Concept «Perfectionism» in the Consciousness of Scientific and Pedagogical Staff of Higher School


The investigation of teacher’s perfectionism is quite relevant due to the Ukrainian integration of higher education into the European educational space and the conversion to a new modernized model of higher education. These factors determine the desire to be better and promotes perfectionism. In the literature there is any generally accepted conceptual basis of perfectionism and therefore there is any distinct, universal term. Using the authors’ questionnaire, which included ending incomplete sentences and content analysis of the obtained results, the authors divide the respondents' answers into several groups: «Striving for ideal and perfection», «Belief that an ideal can and should be achieved», «The desire to perform every action perfectly», «The belief that the imperfect result of work cannot be acceptable», «Harmful desire for perfection», «The need of self-improvement», «A person’s tendency to set high standards for others and for itself», «Order and discipline».
