When you think of a perfectionist, what comes to mind?
Almost every time it’s the type A personality who is incredibly organised and competitive. The sort of person who is particular and also explicit about wanting to get things right.
But there is a different kind of perfectionist too.
The second is the sort of person that procrastinates and fears their best will never be good enough.
Beneath the surface they seek perfectionism too. They have such high expectations that they won’t even try if they think they can’t meet them. This sort of person feels disappointed if they produce something that isn’t ‘perfect’.
The difference between these 2 people is that the first is willing to try.
