Background: The present research investigated the relationship between suicide ideation and Behavioral Inhibition/Activation Systems (BIS/BAS) and perfectionism in university Studants.
Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted on200 students at university of Tabriz that were selected by multistage cluster sampling. The subjects answered three questionnaires: Beck Scale for Suicide Ideation (BSSI), Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (MPS) and Gray-Wilson Personality Questionnaire (GWPQ). Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation and multiple regression.
Results: Results showed that there is a significant relationship between suicide ideation and behavioral inhibition system (R=0/55), self-oriented perfectionism(R=0/40) and socially- prescribed perfectionism (0/47) (p=0.01). Also, the results of regression analysis showed that behavioral inhibition system, self-oriented and socially-prescribed perfectionism could significantly predict suicide ideation.
Conclusion: Behavioral activation system (BIS) and self-oriented /socially prescribed perfectionism were correlated to and could predict suicide ideation.
