    • The idea that perfectionism is a personality trait is really interesting to me. It really shapes people’s individual perceptions and understanding of the world around them. The results of the study you looked at are really interesting as well.

    This is an interesting topic to cover. When doing a quick search, I did not find many research articles regarding the psychology of astrology. Here is a link to a number of New York Times Articles about astrology. https://www.nytimes.com/topic/subject/astrology

    Great Start!

      I think it’s really interesting that perfectionism has been called a form of anxiety. I’d never thought about it that way before, but it makes sense: both can be good for human health in small amounts, but can actually be detrimental in large amounts. Your research is fascinating.

    • Dear Isabell:
      I am incredibly interested by your post, “Perfectionism,” because it talks a lot about how society has a great impact on the mental health of everyone in it, which is an interesting concept- especially when considering perfectionism.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Some of the effects of perfectionism include depression, anxiety disorders, and suicidal thoughts or actions.” I think this is important for people to know because it shows how our expectations for ourselves, as well as society’s expectations can be detrimental when too perfection-oriented.
      I am also a student who cares a lot about mental health and mental illness (especially how society impacts these things). I have a wordpress blog called Psychologically Strong (url: psychologicallystrong.wordpress.com). If you’re interested, be sure to check it out!
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next!

  • Yulisa,

    I think you have a great start to your research. I believe education is the foundation of success and growth, and exploring the flaws of our education system is an important step in growing as a country. An interesting topic that may relate to your research could be the school-to-prison pipeline because it explains more flaws in our…Read More

    I believe you are bringing up an important issue regarding an environment. I recently learned about an organization called the Plastic Bank. They work in underdeveloped countries to collect plastic for recycling and provide jobs to communities.https://www.plasticbank.com/go-plastic-neutral/#.XHQMOfZFzZs I think this may be useful for…Read More
