I wanted to know how other INFJs have overcome this overwhelming need to be perfect. I don't know if all INFJs feel that way, but I know a lot of us do. I find the way it affects me the most is when I think I'm going to disappoint someone or I have disappointed someone. Even if it was something small that I did on accident. It gives me the worst anxiety.
For some reasons it's the most severe in work situations. I'm constantly terrified that I'm going to do something wrong. I just quit my job recently and I was so afraid that my boss was going to be mad at me for quitting. I know it's irrational. Even if he was mad, who cares? But I think it just goes back to this false assumption that I need to be perfect and I don't know how to change it.
