As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death ... I shall fear no evil with thou art by my side
The Perfectionists greatest battle is for perfectionism - organization and order which is taken too far.
They are highly critical, of themselves and others, and equally as sensitive to criticism. They work above and beyond to make up for others sloppiness and often over create, holding themselves back from ever putting their work out there as they tell themselves its never ready, just one more thing. Everything is very black and white - there is only right or wrong and The Perfectionist very much knows the right way.
They hate mistakes, and when The Judge Saboteur dances with this accomplice saboteur - no-one can punish The Perfectionist as much as they punish themselves. They live in a constant frustration and disappointment when others and themselves, do not live up to the high standards they have set and can often be seen to display sarcastic and self-righteous behavior.
The Perfectionist causes rigidity and makes no room for creative flow, other perspectives are not optional - it's very much my way or the highway. This reduction of flexibility when adapting to change or when greeted with differing styles and the diversity of others does not allow for new ideas, and the mess of creativity. Thus limiting The Perfectionists growth.
It doesn't mater how hard you or others work - you will never please The Perfectionsit who will always find fault in everything you do ... feeding into the self fulfilling prophecy of The Judge Saboteur that 'I'm not good enough'
