This study investigated the relationship between perfectionism and tinnitus distress. In addition, associations between perfectionism, sleep problems and anxiety/depression were investigated. The study included 256 tinnitus patients who completed measures of perfectionism, tinnitus distress, anxiety, depression, and a measure of insomnia. Gender-differentiated multiple regression analyses showed that anxiety and depressive states were related to tinnitus distress for both genders. However, for the males, the perfectionism subscale Personal Standards was related to tinnitus distress, whereas in females, it was the Organization subscale that was most predictive of tinnitus distress.
