Perfectionism... sometimes I am a perfectionist, but it really depends on what I'm doing. If I clean my room, it has to be perfect, but if I write a story I don't strive for perfection, because I can always go back and revise. Some people mistake perfectionism for obsessive compulsive disorder. I know they're not the same thing; my mom is a perfectionist, but she doesn't have OCD. My uncle is a perfectionist to the extreme extent, but he doesn't have OCD either. I don't think perfectionism is necessary, because we're human we do make mistakes. It's in our nature.
