Yesterday, two trustworthy people who don’t know each other used the word “perfectionist” when describing me. Neither were trying to offend, and both were offering honest feedback. I was a bit taken aback, but it got my attention. I generally see myself as a bit more easygoing than that, and I always thought of other terms to describe myself. Tenacious? Yes. Tending toward OCD? Definitely. Reluctant to leave a task only partially completed? Absolutely. But perfectionist? Why does that word carry a negative connotation for me? What do you guys think? Am I a perfectionist, and is that okay?
