Starts

Duration

30 minutes


Researchers have examined perfectionism in a scientific manner for nearly 30 years. Over the course of this research we have learned a great deal about perfectionism. However, unfortunately, despite considerable progress, perfectionism remains misunderstood by many researchers and practitioners. Some of the major myths regarding perfectionism will be presented and it will be explained how these myths lay in stark contrast to the findings of scientific research. In doing so, perfectionism will be revealed to be a personality trait relevant (to some degree) to everyone. Moreover, while its consequences are complex, ultimately, there is now considerable evidence that it has the potential to damage mental health. To illustrate how this is the case, the latest research studies in this area will be presented.
