in the theraputic model that i adhere to people are functioning perfectly. where they run into issues tends to be in how they apply thier pre-suppositions about things.

for example; in weight loss there is a certain assumption people make regarding thier ability to lose weight as they get older. the pre-supposition among some is that as they get older thier metabolism slows down and it becomes harder to lose weight.

this pre-supposition can do a number of things. for most it gives them the permission to exercise less because there is no point. for the rare few it motivates them to exercise harder and i don`t see them booking weight loss sessions.

the pre-supposition is proveably false by simply pointing out that if it was true all people who got older would get progressively heavier. a simple few minutes spent at the mall will confirm that people of all ages coming varying degrees of size.

so, the idea of perfection as i have expanded it metaphysically has a root in behaviour.

We've been through this before, sort of, but I don't believe it's possible to be perfect. Have a good day.
