Are you an Imperfectionist? Did I just coin the term? To me being an Imperfectionist means being someone who understands that perfect is great but it is ok not to be and that imperfect is actually more appealing anyway. When you take a look at a piece of art whether it is a sculpture, a painting or a carefully designed dress, you will most likely spot some imperfections.
