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.
