Do you always have to do everything perfectly?
Do you raise the bar high, both personally and professionally?
Do you create long ToDo lists that seem to have no end?
Are you afraid of doing things that really matter to you because you are worried you are going to fail?
Are you quick to worry (for instance about what other people might say or think) and and do you get stress or tension quickly?
Are you very strict with yourself?
Do you often have negative thoughts about yourself or others because you or they are not doing well enough?
Do you feel like you cannot really be yourself?
If you recognize yourself in one or more of the examples above than you might be a perfectionist.
Many Highly Sensitive People (HSP) are also perfectionists. And this is a trait that can be both a blessing and a curse.
