  6. Perfectionism is bad

    research at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont., has confirmed that connection, although the causal mechanisms have not been worked out. Perfectionists tend to be more stressed and have less social support to manage that stress, and experts suspect that could trigger negative health outcomes.

    Are you a perfectionist?

    Molnar's new paper suggests that some perfectionists are also cursed with a tendency to procrastinate, to fail to complete important tasks even when they know the delay will result in negative consequences. It's especially prevalent in the form of perfectionism scientists call "perfectionistic concerns."

    "These are people who set extremely high standards and feel compelled to reach them but are also preoccupied by what other people think of them," Molnar said. "They're very sensitive to external pressure. They tend to be motivated by a fear of failure rather than by approaching success."

    Another form, known as "perfectionistic striving," is driven by an internal compulsion to reach unrealistically high standards, and it tends to be associated with self-criticism.
