very interesting

I wonder if there is a connection between social anxiety and perfectionism since I have both. I read this book Embracing the Fear by Judith Bemis and Amr Barrada, and they say being hard on ourselves and demanding on ourselves contributes to the anxiety. Does the book give good tips for getting over perfectionism? I think I have perfectionism, but I'm not a controlling person. The subtitle implies that you try to over-control things.

I believe Perfectionism is most closely linked with OCD
