People who are overly perfectionistic do not see perfectionism as a problem; most likely, they see perfectionism as an attribute.

Like most attributes, there are times they help us and times they hold us back. Look at the outcomes of perfectionism and see if there are parts of it that could use a little adjustment. Are you late on lots of things? Do you worry about things long before you need to? Do you judge others for the way they do things? If so, it might be worth looking at how you interact with your perfectionism.

— Mike Twohig, professor of psychology and co-author of The Anxious Perfectionist: How to Manage Perfectionism-Driven Anxiety Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
