I’ve been speaking about perfectionism (the occupational hazard of being gifted) for years, and I thought I’d share my presentation on it. If you have a gifted child or are gifted yourself, you have likely dealt with the issue and struggle that is perfectionism for quite a while on different fronts.
Of course it’s better with in person, but you will get the main ideas, and the I’ve made the accompanying Perfectionism handout available as well.
If you’d like more information, please read Forget your Perfect Offering.
If you have ideas on how you’ve coped with your own perfectionism, I’m interested in hearing them.
