What is Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder?
Individuals with an Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (also known as OCPD) are concerned about efficiency, perfectionism and control. They are reliable, credible, orderly and methodical, but their inflexibility makes them unable to adapt to changes.
They experience difficulties making decisions because they fear they have failed to consider all the pros and cons of the options available. They take their responsibilities seriously, but due to the fact that they do not tolerate errors or imperfections, they often have difficulty completing their activities.
Unlike Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder is not characterised by repeated and unwanted obsessive thoughts and by ritualistic behaviours that the subject feels compelled to perform.
Individuals with Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder are often men of action and success, particularly in science or in other intellectual fields where order and attention to details are required. However, their excess responsibility makes them so anxious that they can rarely enjoy the outcome of their work and successes.
Those with OCPD do not feel at ease about showing their feelings, in interpersonal relationships and in situations where they have no control (because they have to rely on others or are unpredictable).
The onset of Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder usually occurs in adolescence or early adulthood.
