This website is a guide to the signs and symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) – otherwise known as Anankastic Personality Disorder.

The information contained here is a summary of several research documents and websites, that I have presented here in what I hope is a friendly, easily understood fashion. I’ve also added my own experiences to this, and those of others that I have met online.

If you feel like you would like more help with your own OCPD, or a friends/partners, please visit the Useful Links section where you can find links to a few online communities dedicated to OCPD where people may be able to help you.


I have installed and set up a simple forum for a test run, which you can find here. It might seem sparse to begin with, but given time I imagine we could build a nice community here.
