    I am quite a perfectionist. It is not fun.

    I've struggled with perfectionism. I have to consciously tell myself to just trust my first attempt at least for some time. It's gotten to the point now that most people that didn't know me 6-7 years ago might not realize I'm doing this.

    After writing this down it seems like Ti being roped in by N...

    Or correcting me on a simple grammar mistake.
    Everything has to be perfect.
    I'm guilty of all these things (including the spreading cream cheese on bread, lol )

    I don't know if it's all Ps, and for one thing I'm definitely not tidy (my perfectionism really doesn't reach this area ), but I am a perfectionist, yeah. I'm so much of a perfectionist that I rarely get anything done, because I always see too many flaws and imperfections. That's why I genuinely like deadlines... I'm forced to hand in some work of mine even if I still think it's imperfect, and surprisingly, the teachers usually don't think so. If there were deadlines for novels or so, I would perhaps reach my dream job of being a novelist...

    Ps are perfectionists when it comes to their internal logic systems and the way value judgments are made.

    Js are more the perfectionists when it comes to external methodology and "getting things right" objectively.

    INFPs and ENFPs can be perfectionists because of their idealism.
    I notice INTPs can be very perfectionist at times, and I imagine ENTPs can also. INTPs will have a certain idea and it must be expressed just so. In other areas they deem trivial, they aren't as particular (and same could be said of NFPs).

    SPs generally seem more laid back, especially the Es, but I notice ISxPs can get stuck perfecting details. Something about being a dominant judger (IP) makes it more pronounced than with the extroverts. Even so, I notice they seem more satisfied with their end result than NPs. Something about Ne can make you get stuck in endless revision, because you're so future-focused and always seeing what can be improved.

    Fi = ethical perfectionism
    Ti = logical perfectionism
    Fe = social perfectionism
    Te = empirical perfectionism

    I have a few things that I'm a total perfectionist about (stats, making pizzas, academic papers...) but in general I'm not perfectionistic about most things- my toenail polish is almost always seriously chipped, I rarely notice if the house is messy and my car should probably be visited by FEMA...

    I guess that I pick and choose what to be picky about

    Ti and English papers don't mix. So many horrible memories.

    I'm a perfectionist about many things. I hate it. A lot.
