Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

When dealing with a person that has a perfectionist mentality it is best to show them that mistakes are what help us learn the most throughout our lifetime. If it was not for our mistakes we would have never learned to complete a task the correct way or tie our shoes the correct way. A person that has this mentality are easier dealt with by professionals rather than loved ones when attempting to correct the behavior. This is mainly because the person may feel personally attached if his family tells him he has a problem. A professional can teach people of this nature that they cannot learn to pick something up, if they never drop it.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
