Core values give rise to the activities we enjoy that give meaning to our lives. One of my highest values is aesthetics - "a need for self-expression, a dedication to quality, an interest in how things look, feel, and sound, and close attention to the appearance of work products". It's a strong value for me, and sometimes I over-emphasise it. I get caught up in "style" and overlook "substance". I get distracted by "bright shiny things". Which of your values do you overemphasise at times?

I completed my own MAP (Mood Assessment Program) from the Black Dog Institute recently so I could understand what my clients might go through when I get them to do it. I was surprised to discover that I have perfectionism at a 'risk' level in my personality - what does it mean?

Perfectionism is characterised by a striving for flawlessness and setting excessively high performance standards, being overly self-critical, and concerned about others' evaluations. Mmm, well it's not all bad! Perfectionism can also be a strong motivator to reach goals, provided you don't try to achieve an unattainable ideal. By that definition, most of my colleagues and clients are perfectionists! "Trying to get it right" is no bad thing, provided you know your own limits.
