PostSubject: Perfectionism: Is There a Cure?   Sun Jan 31, 2010 4:38 pm

I was recently reading this Wikipedia on perfectionism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfectionism_(psychology)
I also realized that perfectionism seems to be the cause for most of my negative points, like:
- I eat a lot
- My anxiety and low self-esteem
- My need to fix something if it doesn't look right
- Low productivity
- Procrastination

I always knew I had a little bit of a perfectionist in me, but recently while working on my portfolio I came into full realization. Making an original character, something that should have taken me a couple hours to do, had taken me over two day (still not finished it) because either the pose looks off or the way I drew the clothing isn't exactly how I pictured it.

Is there hope for me? Or am I fucked?

I don't know if, in your case, it is something that would need to be "cured" or not. If you think you have some sort of problem you would have to take it up with a psychiatrist, but chances are your struggles are just less typical.

I know I take hours and hours to write simple papers. I think it is just something you have to work at. Keep trying new things.

I think its something a boss will really respect especially in art. Attention to detail

While this is true in some aspects, it also means my productivity will be low. If one guy can spit out one really detailed piece of concept art, and another guy can spit out three or four not as detailed pieces, but relays the same idea to the 3D artist, the boss is gonna choose the more efficient worker.
