Re: Physical illness masking Perfectionism?
Given the tendency of non-P types to be more fun loving and light hearted, I would think that illness would tend toward producing more of a P phenocopy. I think we are talking about an illness that actually causes fatigue and lowering of activity?? Some chronic illness (like Multiple scherosis are noted for causing a more light-hearted attitude. One is surprised at how well those with MS sometimes carry it all off with good humor. Of course, it may be that those with non-P trait are more likely to have illnesses like MS?
