What if everything was perfect or looked perfect, would things be MORE or LESS appealing?? Why do some strive for perfection when this may actually be less interesting than imperfections??

It would not be as interesting, but at the same time if everything was perfect then the world would be more peaceful.

The question is, who would determines what is perfect?

Nothing and No one can EVER be perfect no matter how perfect some people try to be.

It will never happen, so therefore thinking about it is useless.

Perfect people have mental unstability and are very insecure because anyone who needs to feel or who think they are pefect are afraid to face the flaws that they are afraid to fix. Even if you have fixed those flaws, there is always something else you need to improve.

It's exhausting being perfect. Especially when you are a kid. My parents expected perfection at all times, still do actually and to be honest it's a lot of work but when you are older you look at your track record and feel so much pride that it makes it well worth it.
I have also felt the need to be perfect because I am black, I can never have meaningless sex or smoke weed or even drink a little too much because thats what people would generally expect..... But thats s whole new topic.
I don't know what you mean exactly by a perfect world but a perfect individual is not boring at all.

People can be different in their perfectness.

If perfection is boring, then it's not really PERFECT.

People strive for perfection, because of the journey. It's the learning experience to be at the top of one's game. It's the learning experience involved in dealing with the adversity to reach a goal. It's the sweat that comes with the conditioning to be better.

That is why people strive for the perfection.

A Perfect world where we do NOT experience any Pain emotionally or physically. This would mean we are always makin' choices that wouldn't lead too any suffering. However there are many things we view as 'Fun' which could also lead too emotional or physical Pain. That's why I asked would a Perfect world be BORING or at least seem that way.

If thinkin' about it is useless why would many PPL complain about their imperfections?? It seems we don't want to be perfect but we also don't want to be imperfect either hence you stating there is always something else you need to improve....why??

Perfection based on Biblical Texts. Of course the meaning of Perfection could vary from one individual to the next.

Yes we would seem MORE Robotic & less life like. It's imperfections which make us MORE authentic. Something that is too perfect would come across as Cartoonish.
