The purpose of this study was to investigate the validity and reliability of The Dyadic Almost Perfect Scale (DAPS) for Turkish people. DAPS (İİOOMÖ in Turkish) was administrated to 319 people and Multidimensional Perfect Scale (MPS-HF / ÇBMÖ in Turkish) was used for the convergent validity. In order to determine the construct validity of İİOOMÖ, factor analysis was conducted by using principal components analysis with varimax rotation. The analysis resulted in three factors known originally as “discrepancy”, “high standards” and “order”. The Cronbach's coefficient alphas for these subscales range between .75 and .87. Also, test-retest reliability for the subscales ranges between .53 and .63. The analysis indicated that İİOOMÖ has a satisfactory level of validity and reliability on Turkish sample.
