Comments[edit source]

Hi, I was thinking you might be able to try looking into OCPD, perfectionism is one of the symptoms that people with OCPD display. There would be plenty of good case studies of people suffering OCPD who have used perfectionism to become quit successful. EG Steve Jobs. Good Luck! --Janed1987 (discusscontribs) 09:42, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi there

I have noticed that you don't have anything on your page yet. I thought this research article may be useful for you :)

Good luck!

Hi, I have noticed you are editing your user page not your book chapter page. U3068081 (discusscontribs) 12:10, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

HI! As with u3068081, make sure you write your topic on your chapter page and not your personal page! Good luck with getting it completed soon! TomMarvoloRiddle (discusscontribs) 23:52, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Sport[edit source]

Hi Svetlana, I have been doing some research into sporting achievement and how motivation plays a role here, and came across this gem in my research: . You'll find that they highlight the idea that perfectionism is a psychological characteristic that makes an Olympic Champion. I'm not sure if you wanted to take this sporting route, but if you did this article would be quite handy! TomMarvoloRiddle (discusscontribs) 04:22, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Narcisism[edit source]

Hi there, I've recently been doing some reading on perfectionism out of personal interest and I found that narcisism is often a component of perfectionism. Perfectionism often extends to personal appearance and the perfectionist will feel that there others will judge them if they gain weight or otherwise become "less attractive." Another trait of prefectionism is procrastination, which can be really crippling. It's linked into fear of failure - a perfectionist has to get every project perfect in all its details and so projects seem insurmountable which leads to procrastination (projects are too big and overwhelming to even start). There is a page on fear of failure which you may like to link to... I've mentioned perfectionism on her discussion page as well.

Best of luck! Katie (TheDancingZebra (discusscontribs) 21:58, 2 November 2013 (UTC))

Food for Thought[edit source]

HI There, Just wondering if you came across any research around children whom experienced trauma and have developed perfectionism as a result of wanting to control everything? (LiabillyWildflower (discusscontribs)

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is reasonable start at a good chapter, but is clearly incomplete.

Theory[edit source]

  1. A good start is made on describing perfectionism and some related theory, but a more comprehensive review of theory is needed.
  2. Consider type vs. trait. The topic/question is about a trait (perfectionism), whereas the chapter sometimes tends towards dealing with the topic as a type (perfectionist).
  3. A useful distinction is made between productive aspects of perfectionism and problematic aspects. It is not clear, though, how this is reflected in the quiz.

Research[edit source]

  1. Some research is cited, but a more comprehensive review of research is needed, including consideration of relevant effect sizes if possible and some critical analysis of relevant research.
  2. Great to see examples of measures; the example items could be incorporated into the same lines as the factor names or definitions of the factors could be provided. Incomplete description of other measures - perhaps decide to focus on one as an example and discuss whether others instruments have similar or different factors and why.

Written expression[edit source]

  1. The chapter was incomplete and what was presented needed closer proofreading. See my edits for suggestions.
  2. Overuse of RoundBoxes - most of these have been removed.
  3. Use Australian spelling e.g., conceptualized -> conceptualised
  4. What is the source of the items in the quiz?

Some additional minor changes were made by an anonymous IP address on 29 January 2014 - see Additional feedback comments:
  1. Unnecessary addition of <small></small> around some references - this should be undone (keep it simple).
  2. Despite comment about overuse of RoundBoxes, more were added - these should be undone (keep it simple)
  3. The chapter remains unfinished, with several empty sections.
  4. Grammar tags were removed and in some cases fixed.
  5. The clarification needed tag was not addressed.
  6. No substantive changed were made.
  7. Mark remains unchanged.
  8. Copyright concerns about the quiz items remain.

Further changes were made by Svetlana16 and an anonymous IP during March. The chapter is now complete to a satisfactory level. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 04:41, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a basic, slide/text-based, narrated audio screencast.

Structure and content[edit source]

  1. The presentation summarises the content of the book chapter.
  2. Limited use of examples.
  3. Slide at 3:30 (positive and negative aspects) is very helpful - perhaps could be used earlier, to explain both sides of perfectionism.

Communication[edit source]

  1. The text-based slides are clear (high contrast).
  2. Narrated audio could be improved by slowing down (pause between sentences and between slides).
  3. Greater variation in intonation could be used to enhance interest/engagement.
  4. Some slides probably contain too much text - consider selecting only the most important information.

Production quality[edit source]

  1. Audio has some white noise and background noise (best to use a headset microphone rather than built-in microphone)
  2. No images?
  3. Presentation licensing is included.
