Many people think that having the highest credit score means having a score of 850, which is the highest FICO score which anyone can have. A perfect credit score does not have to be the maximum credit score. It can be any score ranging from 760-850, and a person with a credit score within this range, will still receive the same benefits as those individuals with a credit score of 850. Characteristics of a person with a perfect credit score The type of person who would usually have a perfect credit score is an older adult who is an overachiever, and a little conservative with their spending habits. A person who has a perfect score is a very humble person, they do not go around bragging about how good their score is. The people who have a perfect credit score make up less than 1% of the U.S. population. So, there are not many people who have maintained a perfect score.

It shows that they can balance the different types of payments, and be responsible with their account activity. Limit the credit inquiries A person trying to obtain a perfect credit score should not just open credit accounts for fun. It is good to only apply for credit cards as they are needed.
