Which is better? A Perfectionist or a Laid-back person.
I like to have an attitude of "the world won't come to an end if things are not done in a certain way". However, I also think being perfect is excellent - it just has added stress.
being perfect beyond measure, can have extra stress. Pace your self if you are like me with deadlines your have know how to measure our your work load or personal matters.
We're all made differently, so not one personality type is better than the other.
I'm one of those perfectionists who is wound too tight but would like to learn how to be a more laid back person.
It would be nice to have some balance between the two.
Laid back is best for me. Perfectionist worry too much about things that do not matter, like folds in a bed sheet.
I have decided it’s better to be laid back. Perfectionists never seem to be finished with anything. I have lots of kids in the house and being a perfectionist would make me crazy. I clean a room, it’s destroyed five minutes later. Laid back is my survival tool.
I don't know about this one. I want to be a perfectionist at work and at home, which I'm not. But I also want to have a laid back attitude. I can't stand uptight people.
They are not mutually exclusive. Being a laid back perfectionist is better than being just laid back or just a perfectionist. If you sit back, give yourself time to think and reflect about how to perfect a job then you are a laid back perfectionist. So you can be both laid back and a perfectionist, it just takes longer.
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.
A Laid-back person knows when and how to get the fun and still get the job done. But a perfectionist tend to raise the height so that the actor finds himself in a better position. I prefer Laid-back, if i must chose.
Why compare the two? Life isn't black or white. However, I'd put money on the person who lives the longest - that'd be the laid-back person!
I'm laid back , my hubby is a perfectionist....I definitely worry way less. However, I think we both influence each other....I am a little more organized because of him and he's learned to relax a little more. So my answer is perfectionists and the laid back need to partner up!
I'd say it's a matter of preference, and since both types of people are good for the word in general I would just say pick what you prefer and then try to make sure you are not too much of an extreme and either on is good. I think the word "perfectionist" has a bit of a bad connotation though, so I almost want to say someone who is more laid-back, but either are good if not extreme.
I have been a perfectionist as my husband has too. After suffering from Lupus and missing my husband from his workaholic ways. I think you have to find a medium. Some days being laid back can be just what the doctor ordered but on the other hand we need a little bit of stress to get us out of bed in the morning.
My husband used to have to have even his vacation days planned but he has learned to my delight to relax. It is amazing what we learn through experience and aging.
