The present research is a practical study with survey. To collect the data a questionnaire was used. The research population consists of boy students at private high schools, region 1 in Tehran in 2013. The research instruments are Kobasa hardiness, stress and Hill perfectionism scales whose validity were tested. To test the reliability, Cronbach’s alpha was applied. In the current research, stress is the dependent variable and hardiness and perfectionism are the independent variables. Physiological responses are reactions toward presence of stress and components of measurement physiological responses are physical, anxiety, social and depression responses. Also, measures of hardiness include commitment, control and challenge. Measures of perfectionisms also consist of focus on errors, seeking approval, organizing, objectively, ruminating think and seeking excellence. The main result of the present study is that hardiness and perfectionism lead to decrease of stress among boy students. Also, components of organizing and ruminating think end to decrease of stress among the boy students. However, other measures (commitment, challenge, focus on error, seeking approval, objectively and seek excellence) have no impact on decrease of stress.
