I'm a bit slow at things, also due to perfectionism, but then I get another dose of anxiety and that usually speeds me along if I know people are watching. I do daydream a lot too, and I think that contributes to the slowness sometimes. I did have a friend once who did everything super slowly, and eventually I found out that she was diagnosed with major depression.

Possibly related but possibly not, I have these moments where everything appears to be moving incredibly fast, and I perceive myself as moving ridiculously slow, but in reality I think I'm moving at a regular pace and it's just some weird anxiety thing affecting perception.
