perfectionism

Found in the 'Notes' section at the back of the book:
Women Who Run With The Wolves
Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D.

There is negative perfectionism and positive perfectionism. The negative sort often revolves around the fear of being found inadequate. A postive perfectionism gives best effort, stays with something productive for mastery's sake. Positive perfectionism urges the psyche to learn to do things better; how to write better, speak, paint, eat, relax, worship better, and so on. Positive perfectionism makes certain actions consistently in order to recognize a dream.
