Article Title: The modern problem with pursuing perfection
The article looks into a study on perfectionism and its potential negative effects on the mental health of a person with the trait. The researcher used a test called Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale which measured three types of perfectionism:

The causes of rising socially prescribed perfectionism in the past decades is a result of our growing usage of social media sites like Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat.
