Gertrude Ederle strives for accuracy, efficiency and precision, and she becomes very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, Gertrude Ederle can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that she will not even attempt many activities and projects, feeling that her efforts will simply not be good enough.

Of course, practice makes perfect, and if Ederle does apply herself diligently in a given area, she gradually gains self-confidence as she masters skills and develops expertise.
