Perfectionism: Defining Unicums?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested to know how perfectionism as a personality trait lends itself to overall WoT gameplay performance, particularly between unicums and average players.

 

BBC Perfectionism Test

 

Take this 10 minute quiz and post all of your subscores (just the acronyms labeling each score will be fine). It'll be very interesting to see what the results are. 

The results will definitely help to link a correlation between personal attitude and standards, and performance in a competitive atmosphere.

 

 

Thanks :)

 

 

 

My results 

Concern over Mistakes CM: 4

Personal Standards PS: 4

Parent Expectations PE: 3

Parental Criticism PC: 3

Doubting of Actions D: 5

Organisation O 4

Two 6s

Three 5s

One 4. 

 

Specific subscales pl0x?

like (CM), (PS) (PE) etc. 

 

Or if it's easier (or undesired due to privacy reasons), average the 6 scores.

What's the typical asian parent stereotype? 

 

I wouldn't know, only one of my parents are asian, and for asian standards she's pretty lax. Not even close to Tiger Mom.

 

 

I know where you're going with this, but I'm gonna let it settle at (5 6).

 

EDIT: Realized it after a while. I'm so sorry. How's violin treating you?

I think I what I thought the question was asking me and what it was really asking me were 2 different things.

 

"It often takes me a long time to do a job right"

 

Me: Agree because I don't do a half-ass job

Them: Agree because he doubts his work

This was the only scientifically backed online reasonable and public non-invasive quiz I could find. As a person who conducted his own questionnaire for secondary school students, ambiguity of statements are the death of the validity of your project. Hope the SD doesn't trunk your stats, and that you get enough. 

 

 

 

Keep the data coming guys! The more, the better! .05 p value!

The ratings are out of... 6? The "average" scores are quite low.

 

We feel that the questions are worded rather harshly, as if perfectionism makes you mentally unstable or something.

I can't be arsed to be perfectionist. I'm also lazy, which means i try do things right the first time so i don't have to do them again.

I noticed that too, the whole quiz feels loaded.

Based on the feedback and the "low" average score, I would say that the questions are purposefully worded harshly,  pushing moderates towards the 1's and 2's (which would, in turn, explain the low average score), whereas higher scores are given to more "severe" cases. (just an interpretation)

 

When I crunch the data, I won't be taking into account the "average" score. Only between participants. Control group will be..... figured out. :) :) :)

 

 

In a psychological standpoint, perfectionism..... Eh, i'd rather not say right now. I'll leave it for the results.

2, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4.

 

I would expect better players to tend towards perfectionism and "type A" behaviors. Being frustrated or dissatisfied makes you smarter, I'm serious as a heart attack. More accurately, it motivates you want to figure out ways to avoid repeating errors by seeking out information and improving.

 

I platoon with a yellow/green and his garage makes me sad. He runs crappy tanks with crappy crews, no equipment, stock, sometimes even starts with 50% crews. I don't know how he stands it. On the other hand, he also never gets frustrated. I've never seen him angry-at all, ever. The fact he doesn't get frustrated or have those perfectionist tics is a lot of why he's yellow/green, he just doesn't care enough to seek out the information that would improve his game. I've seen him play green/blue when he's used good, well equipped tanks instead of grinding junk, he just doesn't care enough to make sure he can do consistently.

People will probably think less of me if I make a mistake.

Other people seem to accept lower standards from themselves than I do.

Yup, I have double standards.

Although I don't put much trust into these tests. The questions seem like repetitions of the same 5 questions to get the 30 or however many there were, I keep having to re-read a question to make sure what it's actually asking because It feels like I've answered 3 identical questions before it (especially the one with parents)
