Abstract
Perfectionism is a quality of mind that has an impulse for high-performance standards and tags along with a propensity to captiously criticize oneself. It is strongly correlated with one's mental health and has a significant strong impact on one's career, studies, and overall quality of life. This paper explores different aspects of perfectionism and its relationship with well-being. A study of young age groups has been conducted by Interviewing 25 people in the Delhi-NCR region in India. Results show that the majority of people (84%) do not adhere to the ideal of perfectionism, whereas 16% of participants do believe in the idea of perfectionism. However, 44% of them identified as perfectionists. About 56% of people criticize themselves when they don’t feel good enough, whereas 44% believe they are good enough regardless of how they feel. Yet almost 24% of respondents say that striving for perfection is beneficial to their well-being, whereas 76% disagree with this. The results of this study would be useful for expanding the knowledge on different aspects of perfectionism and the perception of youth about how perfectionism affects their well-being.
