Perfectionism has affected me through lack of self confidence. I always have the nagging feeling of self doubt. Will they find out about me that I cannot do the job? Just how effectively can I keep the wool pulled over their eyes? Working as an architect, landscape architect, and a project manager, I always had this feeling of being found out that I could not do the work no matter how much positive reinforcement I would receive. Working in pastels, there is no shroud or veil to hide behind. What you see is what you get no matter what you like of it.
