This infographic explores the perfectionist personality and whether perfectionism as a trait is a positive or a negative. Created by EssayTiger, the chart 'Perfectionism: Is It A Good Or A Bad Thing?' defines the characteristic, offers examples of what a perfectionist might sound like, pros and cons, types of perfectionism and how to utilize the attribute in a healthy way.
The perfectionist personality is about striving for flawlessness, setting excessively high standards, overly critical self-evaluations and concerns about the opinions of others. On the one hand perfectionism allows for higher personal standards, great organization skills, a love for details and a polished end result. But on the other, it can lead to social anxiety, obsessiveness, frustration and depression.
