Managing Perfectionism (MH Lesson)

Perfectionists aspire to achieve, but do not allow themselves to make mistakes. They search for imperfections or weaknesses in themselves and others. Perfectionists strive for flawlessness and set high standards for themselves. They are often harshly critical of their own performance. Perfectionism is different than striving for excellence. People who pursue excellence in a healthy way take genuine pleasure in working to meet high standards. Perfectionists are motivated by self-doubt, fear of disapproval, ridicule, and rejection. Positive feelings about self are connected to achievement at superior levels. Use the scale to determine your level of perfectionism. Examine ways to relax your standards and develop strategies to reduce your level of perfectionism and re-capture the joy of living life.
