        In the present study, the mediating role of self-compassion in the relationship between perfectionism and eudaimonic well-being was investigated. To do so, 210 Master students from Shiraz University were selected through multistage random cluster sampling method. Participants answered to Almost-Perfect-Scale-Revised, (Slaney et al, 2001), Self-Compassion Scale (Neff, 2003), and Eudaimonic Well-being Scale (Waterman et al, 2010). Data were analyzed using path analysis through Amos software. Results showed that standard component (as adaptive perfectionism) has a positive effect, and discrepancy component (as maladaptive perfectionism) has a negative effect on eudaimonic well-being. Self-compassion showed a mediating role in the relationship between discrepancy component of perfectionism and eudaimonic well-being. In the base of these results, self-compassion can be considered as a buffer against the negative impact of maladaptive perfectionism on eudaimonic well-being. Manuscript Document

        The purpose of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the new scale of the Dark tetrad scale. The research method was survey and the statistical population consisted of all students who educated at Mohaghegh Ardabili University during 2017-2018. A sample of 600 individuals (300 females and 300 male) were selected through a multistage cluster sampling method. Data from 30 individuals were excluded due to a defect in completing the questionnaire. To collect data, Assessment Sadistic Personality Scale (Plouffe et al., 2017), Dark Triad Scale (JoneS & Paulhus, 2014), Emotional Intelligence Test (Bradbury-Graves, 2005) and Short Form of the NEO Questionnaire (Costa, McCray, 1989) were used. In order to examine the reliability of the questionnaire, the internal consistency coefficient was used and also the validity of the questionnaire was assessed by divergent validity, exploratory factor analysis and first-order confirmatory factor analysis. All analysis was done using SPSS-25 and LISREL 8.8. The results of the internal consistency coefficient showed that this scale had the appropriate reliability (Cronbach's alpha coefficient for Machiavellianism was 0.82, narcissism 0.86, psychopathy 0.79 and sadism 0.77). Confirmatory Factor Fitness Indexes also show the appropriate validity of the scale (CFI = 0.95, RFI = 0.96, NNFI = 0.93, RMSEA = 0/060). Therefore, it can be said that this scale is an appropriate instrument for measuring the dark aspects of personality. Manuscript Document
