According to this test, you are bound by the cuffs of perfectionism. You set impossibly high standards that can never be met; either you impose those expectations on yourself, others, or a combination of the two. You may even believe that others expect you to be perfect. Whatever the case, this tendency is most likely making you suffer needlessly - whether you realize it or not. It's time that you became aware of your perfectionist side and work on toning it down. While a desire to succeed and strive to reach your full potential can bring you personal fulfillment, you also have to learn when good is 'good enough'. It's important that you develop the ability to distinguish between reasonable aspirations or goals and unreasonable demands. When you set unattainable objectives, you are being cruel to yourself and denying yourself the rewards and self-acceptance that you deserve.

About Perfectionism
Perfectionism can be a healthy quality that drives a person to try his/her best and to make the effort to excel. Some people, however, take the strive for perfection too far...and there is a price to pay. Extreme perfectionists are forever dissatisfied; they can never fulfill their own expectations so, in their own eyes, they are always failures. Chronic perfectionism is driven by deep-seated feelings of inferiority and self-hate, and by nature it reinforces a negative self-image. Performing tasks or fulfilling goals becomes intimidating and unpleasant, since the perfectionist knows deep down that the finished product will never meet his/her expectations. So the perfectionist might have problems with procrastination. Perfectionism, then, can become a double-edged sword - the perfectionist is driven by a desire to succeed, as well as a fear of failure which leaves him/her paralyzed.

In all realms, striving for excellence can be beneficial and lead to a fulfilling professional and personal life. Accepting nothing less than excellence, on the other hand, can be emotionally scarring.

Your score = 64


Sounds about right XD

...That's probably right actually....I am EXTREMELY fussy and everything needs to be perfect. I don't feel like my family criticise me for my imperfections, but I do feel looked down on, so I strive to do better...Man...I'm the worst. XD

You show very few (or no) signs of perfectionism. You don't generally expect a lot from yourself or others, and don't think that others want you to be perfect. While this can be very healthy on one hand, the other side of the coin might present a couple of problems. While you certainly shouldn't punish yourself for not meeting unreasonable demands, it's also possible that you are not expecting enough of yourself - and aren't experiencing the pleasures of setting and attaining goals. Remember that striving for success can feel good and, as long as you don't make fulfillment contingent upon it, is a major motivator. It's great to be a laid-back person, but be careful that you aren't selling yourself short.

I got a 64. Well, it at least confirms that I'm not as much of a perfectionist as I thought. Now to tell that to my crazy little mind.
