Perfection Fantasy Circle
Ideals are brightly shining reference points, and like stars that have guided navigators, are not really reachable. Mentally self-perpetuating circles start with an absolute idea -- an ideal. The perfection ideal puts excessive, most likely impossible, demands on the idea holder. The disappointing results then lead to escapist fantasies -- and more extreme ideas as substitutes for reality.
