5 Psychological Reasons You're Not an Introvert or an Extravert

Are you an introvert? Or an extravert? Are you exhausted interacting with others? Or energised? Do you prefer a quiet night in reading? Or a big night out partying? Do you do your best thinking alone, or in a group? Or maybe you're an 'ambivert' - someone who can and does do all of the above?

Overcoming Perfectionism

It's time to fess up.  Are you a perfectionist? Do you set yourself high standards and then get cranky when you don't live up to them? Do you expect a lot from others and then get disappointed when they don't cut it? Are you procrastinating over something because it's easier to do that than to face the possibility that you won't do it perfectly?

Perfectionism is a curse that many of us live with but there is hope.  You can overcome it - or at least temper it a bit so that life is not quite so overwhelming.
