Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, also called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), frequently leads to perfectionism but not for the right and constructive reasons. People with OCPD sometimes take so long trying to get somethin 'perfect' that in the end the task is unfinished rather than perfect. They can make the people round them hate them because they insist they are the only ones who know what's right or how to do things properly and won't give others the freedom to do things differently. Some make themselves and their families miserable keeping everything obsessively clean and tidy. Obsessive-compulsive personality types imagine actions and beliefs are either absolutely right or absolutely wrong. They also tend to think that, "I'm right. You're wrong." Naturally this causes problems for those round them. When others can't or won't do things exactly the way the obsessive person wants there can even be violence. Wives of obsessive husbands can be at risk of domestic violence. Husbands of obsessive wives can face verbal and emotional abuse. Children face excessive punishment.
Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder and religionEdit
Some types of Christian Fundamentalism encourage Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Then the religious people with OCPD go round saying things like. "I'm righteous! you're a sinner! If you don't mend your ways you're going to Hell. I must punish your body to save your soul." Children growing up in families of that type face a miserable childhood. Pastors with Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder can frighten their whole congregations telling them that they are not as good as God wants them to be and launching into hell fire preaching.
