If you’re a perfectionist, you take a lot of pride in your work and want everything to be exact. You have very high standards for yourself and, probably, for others too.
Perfectionism can be both positive and maladaptive - it can mean you don’t start things (for fear you might fail or not live up to your own expectations) or that you push yourself very hard.
You may become frustrated or find your confidence takes a knock when you don’t get the result you want.
On the other hand, a healthy level of perfectionism can lead you to achieve great things and encourage those around you to live up to their own potentials, too!
Take our quick test to discover your level of perfectionism.
