I like these semi-scientific analysises of our human faults Cracked comes up with: 5 Ways ‘Common Sense’ Lies To You Everyday.

“For instance, procrastination can happen for a lot of reasons–you drank too much the night before, or you’re feeling uninspired, or it’s your first time doing gay porn and you’re having second thoughts–but one of the most common reasons we procrastinate is fear that the end result won’t live up to the “perfect” idea in our heads. Think about the writer friend of yours who has never actually written anything, because they’re “waiting for the right idea” for a book to come along.
This is why people wind up living in their parents’ basement–waiting for the perfect job, the perfect girl, the perfect friendship–before committing to anything.”
