Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder

A pervasive pattern of preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and mental and interpersonal control, at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by four (or more) of the following:

[1] is preoccupied with details, rules, lists, order, organization, or schedules to the extent that the major point of the activity is lost.

[2] shows perfectionism that interferes with task completion (e.g., is unable to complete a project because his or her own overly strict standards are not met)

[3] is excessively devoted to work and productivity to the exclusion of leisure activities and friendships (not accounted for by obvious economic necessity)

[4] is overconscientious, scrupulous, and inflexible about matters of morality, ethics, or values (not accounted for by cultural or religious identification)

[5] is unable to discard worn-out or worthless objects even when they have no sentimental value

[6] is reluctant to delegate tasks or to work with others unless they submit to exactly his or her way of doing things

[7] adopts a miserly spending style toward both self and others; money is viewed as something to be hoarded for future catastrophes

[8] shows rigidity and stubbornness
