About This Quiz

Some of us cannot stand to leave home with a hair out of place, but others of us have better things to worry about. After you answer our yes or no questions, we think we'll be able to figure out how much of a perfectionist you are at heart. You may have already heard it from your friends, but don't you want to know for sure? 

While there's nothing explicitly wrong with being a perfectionist, it does require a high set of standards. We could ask you a bunch of questions with lengthy responses, but our experience tells us that the best way to get to the heart of the matter is to get a short and sweet answer. With perfectionists, too many words can result in overthinking, and overthinking can lead to an answer that's less than perfect! 

As you go through our yes or no questions, listen to your inner voice. Once you've offered up the exact number of answers we need to figure you out, we will let you know exactly where you stand on the scale of wanting everything right and wanting it right the first time! Will we make the right call about you?
