Wow, I thought I knew who I was until I tried this little test:

Perfectionism Scale

I knew that I was highly organized, but I didn't realize that I thought my parents were overly critical.

Don't judge this test before you try it, it's actually quite acurate. ;\)

I scored low on just about everything, although my parental ones were lowest 1&2 Organisation was my higest 4?, it was last week though. It might be a different # at the moment.

I'm not sure my results are so accurate.


I always try to do my best. However, my parents don't expect me to be perfect (the test results disagree there), and I strongly disagree with the statement that if I make a few mistakes (if I am less than perfect) then people won't like me. (the test results disagree there, too... :rolleyes: ) That statement is wrong on so many levels - but I guess a lot of people believe it.

I don't know, Sam, the questions were very direct. I tend to think that either you answered wrong, or the results are more acurate than you think. \:o

The test is pretty accurate. My mom brought me up never to make a fool of your self. This is probably why I gave up going into music. I didn't want to make mistakes and be laughed off stage.

Nothing to worry about here. According to this test, I am PERFECT! (If you don't believe it, just ask my mother!!!)
