Previous studies suggest that different dimensions of perfectionism show differential relationships with various types of negative affect as well as second language (L2) speaking anxiety. However, these findings might not be applicable to L2 writing anxiety, which has been found to be distinct not only from other non-L2-related anxieties, but also from L2 speaking anxiety. Therefore, the present study examined the relationships between multidimensional perfectionism and L2 writing anxiety in a sample of 156 mathematics-and-science-gifted high school girls. The results showed that overall perfectionism had significant positive relationships with overall writing anxiety and two of its dimensions. In addition, similar patterns of association with different facets of writing anxiety were found for three out of the five dimensions of perfectionism examined in this study. Pedagogical implications for dealing with anxious L2 writers with different dimensions of perfectionism are discussed and directions for future research are suggested.
