Have you ever been called a perfectionist?  Do you worry endlessly about getting things right?  In this episode of HSP SOS, Michelle and the Captain talk about why highly sensitive people have a tendency to exhibit traits of perfectionism.  They also discuss healthy types of perfectionism vs. destructive forms and share their personal perspectives on their own perfectionistic qualities.  It's possible that you aren't as bad as you believe, or as ridiculous as others have made you feel, in regards to your own brand of perfectionism.
