I Can Be Perfect! Growth Mindset Moderates the Effect of Perfectionism on Maladaptive Eating Behaviour

Whereas a growth mindset increased use of dieting strategies and consequently maladaptive eating behavior, fixed mindset reduced this effect. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
