Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder that consists of persistent and intrusive thoughts, ideas, or urges (obsessions) which may include repetitive behaviors or mental acts aimed at preventing or reducing anxiety or distress (compulsions).
In the past, OCD was considered an anxiety disorder, but after much research, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders fifth edition (DSM-5) now has it in its own category.
OCD is primarily characterized by obsessions or compulsions, or both.
Obsessions and compulsions are "technically" both a part of our daily cognitive repertoire and can include intrusive thoughts that spontaneously pop into people's minds or the repetitive behaviors that are driven by cultural superstitions, religious beliefs, or useful habits like brushing teeth or nightly routines.
OCPD marks the extreme of a conscientious personality style, which consists of the following traits: hard work, always doing the right thing, completing things the right way, perfectionism, perseverance, orderliness, prudence, and accumulation of things for future use.
All these traits may sound admirable to you and they are advantageous for success at moderate levels. However, individuals with OCPD struggle to adapt to the demands of reality or meet their personal and professional goals due to the rigidity in their ways.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
