Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2013/Perfectionism
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 (discuss • contribs) 09:42, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
I have noticed that you don't have anything on your page yet. I thought this research article may be useful for you :)
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 (discuss • contribs) 23:52, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
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: http://kar.kent.ac.uk/18975/1/Stoeber_%26_Uphill_Triathlon_2009.pdf . 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 (discuss • contribs) 04:22, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
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.
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 (discuss • contribs)
