  • The observed results are only applicable to the university students investigated and cannot be generalized to all millennials.
  • According to the study, perfectionism is a cultural characteristic, and millennials seek perfectionism as a tendency to secure social approval.
  • Research suggests that the ability to feel happy with oneself is partly influenced by the cultural circumstances of the generation to which you belong.
