The preliminary development and validation of a new self‐report questionnaire (the NPQ) for measuring neurotic perfectionism in the eating‐disorder population is described. The 42‐item instrument demonstrated satisfactory internaal consistency. All test items correlated significantly with both SCANS P and SCANS D (subscales of the SCANS (Slade & Dewey, 1986)), thus indicating neurotic perfectionism according to Slade, Newton, Butler, and Murphy (1991), and discriminated well between controls and eating‐disorder patients. NPQ scores demonstrated significant group differences on comparison of neurotic perfectionists with normal and non‐perfectionists (defined by the SCANS) and with subjects who scored above the EAT‐26 (Garner, Olmsted, Bohr, & Garfinkel, 1982) subscale cut‐offs when compared with those who scored below.
