Their result for TA Test : What is your driver? ...

Be perfect!

17% Be strong, 25% Be perfect, 17% Try Hard, 17% Hurry up and 25% Please people

The basis of BE PERFECT is that every task, person, product or even statement can and should be rated as more or less good or bad.

You tend to worry about getting something wrong and want to work out every last detail before offering it for comment. You insist on getting it exactly right when a rough approximation would be more useful, probably to get things right first time. You keep on and on to complete a job long after productive energy has been used up.

Your main driver makes you a poor time planner. You may keep checking results when no longer necessary or when people would rather see a draft quickly. You check things yourself rather then trust others. You hate others criticism: go out of their way to avoid it.

Your main distraction is a HURRY UP. You work well in jobs where detail is important and the set standards are important.

For improvement you need to realise that less than your best may be what is needed at the early stages, that your qualities of accuracy and organisation may have a poor impact on others with different drivers. Give yourself permission to allow and forgive mistakes, imperfections and incompleteness.
