Saboteur Series Part 9: The Stickler
Show Notes

On this week's episode, Jamie and Guy discuss the stickler saboteur  - which happens to be another one of Guy's strongest saboteurs.  The 'stickler' saboteur is one of the ten types of saboteurs identified by Shirzad Chamine in his work on Positive Intelligence.  He teaches that the saboteurs are the negative voices in our heads that "generate negative emotions" (stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, restlessness, and unhappiness) and "sabotage our performance, well-being, and relationships". He defines the stickler saboteur as wanting perfectionism and a need for order and organization taken too far.  The stickler is anxiously trying to make too many things perfect. It can be highly critical of itself and others. It strongly requires self-control. It has high standards and needs to be methodical. There is constant frustration with itself and others. It tends to see the world in black and white. The Stickler can also be a bit of a fixer, believing that they need to fix whatever mess they encounter.

Listen to learn how to manage this for yourself or support the ones you love when they feel sabotaged by this way of negative thinking.
