In a culture overwhelmed by the quest for perfection, thereby committing acts like intellectual dishonesty, erring is left to be a valuable human experience. Recent articles in the Oxford Journal of Public Health explore the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) technology on human relationships in different settings. It is crucial to acknowledge the potential benefits of AI while also being mindful of its possible misuse. As AI technology becomes more integrated into our daily lives, pursuing perfection propels its advancement. However, using AI technology to pursue perfection may adversely affect people’s mental health. In this paper, I argue that pursuing perfection can harm one’s well-being. Instead, it is crucial to acknowledge and embrace one’s mistakes to foster personal growth and development.
