Carol Dweck on Being Perfect
Perfectionism is one of the biggest problems I see in academia, both among faculty and students, maybe even more so among faculty! I often describe myself as a recovering perfectionist. So, I really appreciate what Carol Dweck is doing in this talk, distinguishing between self-punishing perfectionism (ouch!) and the perfectionism that is all about striving and growth.
