Funny thing... I consider myself a laid back perfectionist, if there is such a person. And, it drives me crazy!!! When you think of it, perfection doesn't exist, things can always be improved upon. Where as, being laid back all the time can cause opportunities to slip through your fingers. There has to be a certain balance to these personality traits. You have to work on being able to recognize when the situation calls for a raising or lowering of your standards or attitudes. Great question, Lady E.
