Perfectionism; what is it? It’s when someone refuses to accept anything short of “the best.” Now, is that a good thing? Some people might say yes and others might disagree. Although striving for perfection is unrealistic, it has its benefits as well as its drawbacks. Perfectionists put more pressure on themselves than necessary. This results in their being more stressed and sometimes difficult to cooperate with. In their minds, their work is never good enough; it will never be “the best.” This, however, is not always the case. They believe that spending an excessive amount of time trying to make their work flawless will allow them to feel complete, but it just makes the stress even worse. This is both unhealthy and futile; perfection is always just out of reach. Some people think that being perfect is one of the only ways to get a good grade and to do good work. These people have better grades, a better work ethic, and overall better habits. These students generally perform better academically, because they are more self-motivated. Even when perfectionists are already stressed and worn out, they are still driven to keep doing better and better. Some may say that the only way to get a perfect grade is to work hard and to make no mistakes, and that’s what these kids are trying to do.The value of perfectionism could be debated. Some people think that it’s unhealthy to try to be impossibly perfect, while others think that it’s the only way to succeed. So, Is it a good thing or is it a bad thing?
