Although most people aspire to achieve success, perfectionism can prevent these people from achieving what they want. In this case, people with the personality disorder focus on getting their work perfect. They compare their work with others' work and fixate on the perfect output. They are unlikely to be satisfied with their results because they believe that if they had the perfect results, they wouldn't need to work as hard. In some cases, they may spend an entire day rewriting a two-sentence email because they think it doesn't meet their standards. In others, if they had two points, they would consider it a failure.


If you are suffering from this condition, you should seek professional help immediately. Moreover, it is important to identify your triggers and learn how to overcome them. For example, you can write down what needs to be perfect. You can also challenge your habits and beliefs. Once you have identified the causes, it will be easier to find a cure for this disorder. For this, you must first learn how to identify the various types of perfectionism.
