Dr. Jennifer Laman, a primary care physician with Access Healthcare, LLC discussed the characteristics of a perfectionist along with issues and concerns including recommendations for family, friends and caregivers who have a person who is one in their lives.
"Being a perfectionist can have a very positive impact on society, especially in the work place," said Laman. "In America today, each generation present in the workplace have different expectations toward work ethic, so having someone that is a perfectionist, who works hard to achieve goals, has a higher potential to making a huge impact compared to other generation X-ers and Y-ers." These individuals work hard to achieve goals, which can be very rewarding for themselves and society, she added. She described physicians, researchers and astronauts as examples of careers where perfectionists tend to be found. Research has proven persons categorized as perfectionists do have its benefits, but also its pitfalls. The personality trait can lead to poor physical health and increased risk of death. "The negative impact is important to address, because it is quite possible that several of the widely publicized human attacks have been from a perfectionist not meeting their own expectations," Laman said. "When a young adult is striving to be perfect or meet expectations of others and does not ask for assistance, pressure can build up and they take anger out on others." Some examples of extreme behavior can be found in bullying and retaliation toward others, such as school shootings, she described. "A perfectionist individual often view themselves as superior, preferring control and can become aggressive when not in control, taking out frustrations on the ones closest to them," said Laman. "Those who are perfectionists are often proud of it, as society values their efforts." Offering support and assistance when possible can help, but sometimes more intervention is needed, added Laman. "More often, perfectionists get worse as they age when they do not develop skills to cope," said Laman. "Teaching children early on that perfection is not important, as long as the child tried their hardest with their efforts being good enough. Parents should also set expectations based on age." Appropriate expectations should be based somewhat on age, ability and understanding. "Coping skills are important when in come to education," said Laman. "It is important for the elderly patient to be evaluated by a mental health professional and to seek treatment in the form of psychotherapy in conjunction with medication if necessary," said Laman. "It is especially helpful if family and friends encourage the patient to stick with treatment and practice the coping techniques and problem-solving skills he or she is learning during psychotherapy." Empowering the individual with decisions such as making a list goals with parents, caregivers, or loved ones, and include a realistic plan to achieve the goals can help the individual manage their drive for perfection, advised Laman.
