Abstract: The present study investigated the role of contingent self-worth and perfectionism on changes on state self-esteem and affective responses to poor academic performance. A sample of 157 university students completed a series of surveys measuring perfectionism, contingent self-worth, affect and self-esteem and also a RAT test aimed at threatening students’ academic self-esteem. Analysis revealed a significant moderation effect of contingent self-worth in the relationship between Positive Achievement Striving (PAS) perfectionism and positive affect. However, contingent self-worth did not significantly moderate the relationship between Evaluative Concerns (EC) perfectionism and negative affect or between perfectionism (i.e. EC or PAS) and state self-esteem. Limitations and implications of the study were discussed.
