Hi, and welcome to Wreck Your Perfection! I’m your host, Rachelle LaNae. Today we have an amazing guest that I feel so fortunate to get to introduce. His name is Dr. Thomas Curran, and he is the Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences at the London School of Economics and Political Science. His primary area of expertise is the personality characteristic of perfectionism, how it develops, and how it impacts mental health. He is the author of over 30 published papers and book chapters, and has received numerous awards for his scholarship and research.
You’re going to hear about why social factors are so important when it comes to perfectionism, where this idea of perfection even comes from, and how we’re impacted by our capitalist overlords.
