Perfectionism Quiz: Are you a Perfectionist?
Perfectionism is often rewarded and praised. After all, who doesn’t want things to turn out well. But expecting yourself to do things perfectly without a flaw or a mistake is not the same as doing your best. Perfectionism is not striving for excellence; it is about having unrealistically high expectations of yourself. If untreated, perfectionism leads to anxiety, worry, guilt, and shame. It is linked to codependency, people-pleasing, and feeling disconnected from oneself. If you want to learn more about perfectionism, check out my self-study course here.
