Am I A Perfectionist?

Perfectionists will try to improve themselves and their work constantly to try and reach the high standard they set for themselves. Some may say they try too hard. Others are impressed by their work ethic.
But this attitude can often cause them to get less done than a person who does not strive for perfection all the time.
In this test, you can find out if and how much your life is determined by the pursuit of perfection and whether it's healthy or not.

Hint: Don't overthink the test 😉
