  • You blame yourself if things aren’t done just right
  • You can’t stand it when other people don’t do things your way
  • You don’t trust others to do as good a job as you do
  • You have to do more and more in order to feel accepted by others
  • You are critical of others
  • You can’t open up to other people
  • You procrastinate
  • You’re so afraid of failing that you never get started
  • If you can’t do something perfectly then there is no point even trying
  • You take everything personally
  • You get defensive when criticised
  • Sometimes you are so concerned about getting one task done perfectly that you don’t have time to complete the rest of your work.
