There can be such a huge communication gap between perfectionists and those with whom they live or work. Author and clinical psychologist Dr. Jeff Szymanski summarizes in this brief article how perfectionists feel and view the world.

If you’re a perfectionist, you’ll get comfort in knowing that there are others out there who feel the same way you do. You’ll also pick up some tips on how to work with who you are.

If you’re not a perfectionist, you’ll get some insight into the stressful standards that perfectionists build up for themselves. What you perceive as aloofness or a difficult personality might actually be the manifestation of a perfectionist’s internal struggle.

Hopefully this will open up communication within yourself and with others, no matter which category you fit.
