I really think I am. I get very upset with myself if I do something and there's something that is not right about it. If I know that I can't do something perfectly I'd rather not do it to be honest.

My girlfriend is definitely a perfectionist, fortunately, she also has the intelligence and the work ethic required to push through and get things done.
Sometimes she can need that first initial push to get her started. Or sometimes even a reminder of how amazing and competent she is will be enough to motivate her.
We make a great team since I'm sort of the opposite of a perfectionist. I try to get as much shit started as I can and then I don't actually accomplish anything!2

In some areas, too much. Others, just a little. My teacher says I'm too much of a perfectionist, he calls it the "good girl syndrome". Translated from Norwegian, dunno if it's right.1
