6 signs you might be a perfectionist after all

Actually you are not a perfectionist . Okay… it’s important to you that everything gets done on time and as well as possible and yes… you might end up doing everything yourself rather than letting others do it, but to call yourself a perfectionist would really be an exaggeration. Are you sure? See if these six signs apply to you:

1. You feel like everyone else is lazy or incompetent.
You don’t always want to do everything yourself, but you know that if you don’t take care of it, nobody will. If you ask questions or remind people of deadlines, they feel like you don’t trust them and you feel annoying and small-minded.

2. People often tell you that you seem restless and worried.
The constant feeling that something is wrong can be quite exhausting and tiring: for you and for those around you. Over time, this can be really discouraging to others and lead to low self-esteem . Over time, people around you may stop trying to please you because they feel they cannot possibly meet your high standards.

3. You hesitate a long time before you start something.
Do you often find it difficult to start tasks? Do you put things off for a long time before you can bring yourself to finally start? Maybe it’s because you feel the need to do everything perfectly and are afraid of failing.

4. Other people feel they have to perform well in order to be accepted by you.
When others do something well, you take it for granted and rarely offer praise. However, if someone makes a mistake, he*she will quickly receive criticism from you. Try to be more responsive to the needs of others and less make them feel like they need to perform well all the time.

5. You’re often described as controlling, but you don’t see yourself that way.
It is important to you to achieve a good result, for which you also do a lot. You want to be in control of the outcome, but often the people around you feel like you want to be in control of them . Try to communicate clearly that you care about the cause and express appreciation for a job well done.

6. When others want to talk to you about their feelings, you block them.
Having a serious conversation about feelings with you is almost impossible. There is always too much to do. When someone expresses how they feel to you, you often take it as a personal attack and either block or try to change the subject.
