People with an obsessive-compulsive personality have inordinate difficulty making decisions, are overly concerned with details and efficiency, and relate poorly to others because they demand that things be done their way. They are unduly conventional, serious, formal, and stingy with their emotions.
A personality disorder characterized by recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images experienced as intrusive and distressing. Recognized as being excessive and unreasonable even though it is the product of one's mind. These thoughts, impulses, or images cannot be expunged by logic or reasoning
characterized by perfectionism, dependability, stubbornness, possessiveness, indecisiveness, procrastination. They tend to modify their behavior depending on rank of others (deferential and obsequious to those with high rank, and haughty and autocratic to others.) They require that others do things their way without caring how others respond to their insistent demands (they make "good" bureaucrats). They differ from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in that they don't have the obsessions and compulsions that are features of OCD.
A disorder with a preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism and mental and interpersonal control at the expense of flexibility, openness and efficiency.
In contrast to OCD, a personality disorder characterized by a long-standing preoccupation with order, perfection, attention to detail, rules, and control. Patients with OCPD have an obsessive personality style but do not experience frank obsessions, and their obsessive-compulsive style typically does not result in significant distress.
persons with this disorder are inflexible to change and bothered by a disrupted routine due to their obsession for order. Thus, they experience anxiety and have trouble completing tasks and making decisions. Persons with obsessive-compulsive personality disorder often become uncomfortable in situations that are beyond their control and have difficulty maintaining positive, healthy interpersonal relationships as a result.
Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), or anankastic personality disorder, is a personality disorder that is characterized by a general psychological inflexibility, rigid conformity to rules and procedures, perfectionism, and excessive orderliness.
