Perfectionism has been associated to clinical problems and psychological distress, being the concept of discrepancy representative of its maladaptive aspect. The aim of this study is to determine the perfectionism profiles of Argentine Psychology students and to analyze the relationship between discrepancy, psychological distress and psychological well-being. 85 university students of Psychology have completed several psychometric instruments evaluating: perfectionism (Almost Perfect Scale Revised), psychological well-being (Inventario de Percepción de Calidad de Vida -ICV; Escala de Bienestar Psicológico and psychological distress (State- Trait Anxiety Inventory. Forms Y-I,Y-II, Beck Depression Inventory Second Edition). Results: 82 students completed the evaluation; 44 (54%) obtain a perfectionism profile, disaggregated into adaptive (N=18 21,9%) and maladaptive (N=26; 31,7%). The variable discrepancy is significantly associated to the studied variables in the expected direction: high positive correlations (p value ,01) with variables related to psychological distress, and negative correlations with variables related to psychological well-being (p value ,01).
