    Do I seem like a perfectionist to anyone here?

    I think I am. Specifically, I'd mark myself as a semantic perfectionist.

    Critical thinking is more than just a hobby for me.

    Hehe. Really! It sounds like begals!

    I'm not so much a perfectionist at times. But I critisize myself when I'm not.

    I'm perfectionist in that the truth of some issue is handled exactly as it is, and not muddled with generalizations or anything like that. I also like my language precise. I don't usually do any action- or goal-orientated tasks with perfectionism, instead I look for productivity and efficiency.

    As I get to know them and their habits, I find it that they are perfectionist.

    Whether it's an ENTP, INFP, INTP, ISFP, (dunno about ENFPs), etc...
    The way they spread on cream cheese on begals.
    Their artwork or projects.
    Or correcting me on a simple grammar mistake.
    Everything has to be perfect.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hehe, and they're picky, but who isn't.
    I used to be a hard-core perfectionist,
    but I have learned to relax a little.
    But if that saying is worth anything, that "it takes one to know one",
    I flatter myself that I should be able to spot a perfectionist when I see one.

    I have 2 ISTP men in my family. They are not perfectionists.
    I have an ISTJ daughter and mother. They are not perfectionists.
    I have a son who is either an ENFJ or INFJ. He IS a perfectionist.
    I have an INFP sister who SAYS she's a perfectionist,
    but she is confusing perfectionism with idealism, which is not the same thing.
    She is NOT a perfectionist.
    I have an ESTP father who is not a perfectionist.

    If I have to show a group of people something I'm a perfectionist. Though most of the time I get frustrated because it ends up looking nothing like in my head that I give up and just throw something together. Of course I end up beating myself up over it for days. So I probably am I perfectionist because for me it's either all or nothing. though I tell and act like I don't care so no one knows how frustrated/disappointed i am with what i do most of the time.

    If one can pick and choose what one is "fussy" about, that is not Perfectionism.
    Perfectionism is a handicap that mars a person's existence with unrealistic standards that no human being can possibly meet.
    If one is not driven to get all the specks off the floor,
    or at least driven crazy by the presence of specks on the floor,
    one is not a Perfectionist.

    When a person is creating art, one would expect them to fuss and tweak until it is the exact expression of their soul.
    That is art.

    I agree. To be a perfectionist is to have a propensity for being displeased when something doesn't meet very high standards or expectations. You cannot have a propensity for something if you do it selectively or in very few situations.

    Yes, I am perfectionist... but also easily frustrated. So when perfection doesn't come quickly, I just let it go. I don't do a lot of things I'd like to just because I think I wouldn't do it right.
