perfectionist

  1. Hi from KatRubie, an ISTJ and 1w2

    Intro
    I just joined today. I am here to learn more about myself, how to improve myself (lol! This sounds absolutely hilarious coming from a perfectionist!), and to improve my lot in life. Though I am 1w2 more often, I tend to jump back and forth between the 9 and 2 wings pretty regularly depending on...

  6. [INFJ] Perfectionism

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Is there anyone here who is, or once was, a perfectionist? I've noticed I exhibit the classic signs of it; failure to enjoy successes due to focusing on the small parts that were incorrect, procrastinating on and on because I know, if I try, I'll make a mistake and thus, I'll get hung up on...

    I'm an INFJ and my cousin two years younger than me is an ESFP. She is almost ALL of my pet peeves. I'm a perfectionist and I get straight A's in school. I focus on the future. I always tell people that I'm not just going to school to just go to school. I'm going to school to give myself...
  9. Seriously what's my type?

    What's my personality type?
    I need some advice on what my type is. I had an idea but now I'm not sure. Here's some stuff about me: ............ I dress pretty wild--the crazier the better. I tend to dress how I want and hate it when anyone tries to change me. I tend to take things to the extreme. I'm creative--love...

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    Hello! I'm a 1w9, and having small doubts again on my 1w9. I've noticed how strong my 9 wing is, Though I'm always coming back to my stronger 1 sides. 9w1s are also called "Dreamers" while 1w9s are called "Idealists". This is usually nails it for me, though I'm getting unsure when I hear 9s...
  13. [INFP] What's all this I hear about INFPs being perfectionists

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    Any description you read about INFPs, it says that they are perfectionists. I'm not! I have zero determination and I'll be procrastinating forever. I have no will power. I'm just really careless about things and I also am lacking a work ethic. I mean yes yes I have huge, unrealistic dreams...
