This research aims to examine the roles of adaptive and maladaptive perfectionism in predicting Vocational Outcome Expectation (VOE) on Turkish university students. Participants consisted of 651 students from a public university from Turkey, 313 male (48.1%) and 338 female (51.9%). In the research, Vocational Outcome Expectation Scale and Revised Almost Perfect Scale were used as instruments. The study results showed that there are significantly positive correlations between Standards and Order dimensions of adaptive perfectionism and VOE. It was determined that Standards and Order dimensions, regarded as adaptive perfectionism predict VOE significantly. It was determined that there is a negative correlation between maladaptive perfectionism and VOE. Also, it was determined that the contradiction dimension regarded as maladaptive perfectionism predict VOE significantly.
