The presence of obsession, compulsion, or both. This results in anxiety-driven urges to take action to satisfy the obsession. Thought obsessions can create anxiety and feelings of disgust and the compulsive behaviour is the resulting response. While it can be common to have concentrated thoughts and having a fixed behavioural pattern, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can be disruptive with persistent thoughts and urges to perform an action.
Symptoms of OCD include:
- Doubts and feeling wary.
- Intense concern over details, rules, lists, order, organization or schedule.
- Perfectionism that results in inefficiency and ineffectivity with task at hand.
- Excessive conscientiousness, scrupulousness, and undue preoccupation with productivity to the exclusion of pleasure and interpersonal relationships.
- Extreme pedantry and adherence to social norms and regulations.
