Anxiety and Tension in Perfectionist Athletes
In this sports psychology video of Sessions with Doc, Dr. Cohn discusses how perfectionist athletes have anxiety and tension when they compete.
One of the characteristics of perfectionists is that they feel a lot of anxiety and worry due to their fear of failure. Often the fear is about disappointing others and not being seen as the star athlete by others.
These athletes tend to focus more on the outcomes rather than the process. And they are both distracted and feel pressure to do well for others.
