Are You a Perfectionist?
Published on November 9, 2008
Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) is a pattern of beliefs and behaviors. It may manifest itself in a number of ways. Did you see the move, As Good As It Gets? Jack Nicholson's character had OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) which is a more serious diagnosis... more on this in a bit. It is a very good movie and it helps to understand the disorder and how it disrupts one's live and relationships.
Have no fear of perfection—you will never reach it -- Salvadore Dali
In my humble, professional opinion, everyone who has ever completed a dissertation should take this test. It will be time consuming, because we will want to complete it perfectly. I am not sure if we had to have Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) to attempt the dissertation process or if we were infected with it by our dissertation committee. Persons with OCPD make up about 1% of the population. Guess what percentage of the population have a doctorate? You guessed it—1%--the evidence is piling up.
To be diagnosed with a personality disorder the symptoms must have a pronounced effect on the individual's life.
Quiz questions are based on criteria in DSM IV (1996).
