Transdiagnostic variables: Internal sensations and perfectionism

Perfectionism is a multidimensional personality trait that involves the pursuit of perfection, setting excessively high standards of performance, and critical self-assessment in the face of perceived failure. The increase in research on perfectionism has allowed a deeper understanding of this concept and an understanding of the influence of this personality trait in different clinical conditions. 

Although not considered a process, perfectionism incorporates a set of cognitive and behavioral characteristics that assume the role of a common vulnerability factor to various psychological disorders (eg, depression, anxiety, obsession and compulsion and eating and eating disorders), suggesting its transdiagnostic nature. High levels of perfectionism seem to be related to etiology, maintenance and outcome prediction in the treatment of some clinical and subclinical symptoms.

At the beginning of the present century, the interest in the investigation of new variables strongly associated with perfectionism emerged: the internal subjective sensations of incompleteness and the sensations that something is not quite right (Not Just Right Experiencies, NJRE). The feeling of incompleteness is a stable dispositional characteristic (trait) and the NJREs are the state component of this trait variable. The internal sensations drive the individual to perform behaviors until reaching an internal and subjective feeling of completeness that allows them to be able to stop performing the behavior (stop criteria). For example, a person who feels that their hands are not currently as clean as they should be (not just right), feels "compelled" to wash them until they reach the internal criterion of cleanliness, that is, even subjectively feel that they are already as they should be . Although the study of these variables has arisen within the scope of understanding the motivational mechanisms of compulsions in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, they are nowadays considered to be common etiopathogenic mechanisms to several psychopathological disorders.

This thematic issue aims to bring together investigations that integrate the study of perfectionism and from the internal sensations of incompleteness and NJRE, the importance of parental perfectionism in understanding the perfectionism of children; the relevance of evaluating the cognitive component of perfectionism in the study of the performance of tasks such as text review.
