Perfectionism Can Be Different

Did you know that there are three main types of perfectionism?
  • Self-oriented perfectionism refers to the tendency to place excessively high demands on yourself.
  • Other-oriented perfectionists set high expectations on another person or people – often a partner or children – and pressure them to fix their perceived flaws.
  • Socially prescribed perfectionism refers to the perception that others expect you to be perfect.
