London: If you`re always striving for perfection, your parents are probably to blame, according to a new study. Perfectionists are born - not made - scientists claim, adding that the pursuit of perfection runs in families and is determined by your genes. Researchers at Michigan State University made the link by studying the twin registry and comparing the personalities of identical and non-identical female twins aged 12 to 22. Identical twins have the same genetic make-up so if a personality trait is determined by nurture alone, they should be just as likely as non-identical twins to share it.However, one study in the Depression and Anxiety journal, found identical twins had much closer scores on measures of perfectionism and anxiety than non-identical twins.
