    Based on Pseudo's comment on the Obsessive-Compulsive trait, it seems that anal retentiveness is probably closer to what people who think they have OCD really have. The term anal retentive is derived from Freudian psychoanalysis. For those who don't know what it is, anal retentive is defined as "a person who pays such attention to detail that the obsession becomes an annoyance to others, and can be carried out to the detriment of the anal-retentive person." I am most certainly afflicted by this, but I now realize that I am likely not OCD. Most people who think they have OCD probably aren't as well, so this is for the people that realize that the OCD they thought they had isn't as extreme as OCD really is. I hope this aspect can be of some use to people who misdiagnosed themselves or predict that they were misdiagnosed by someone else. :D Here's a Wikipedia article for further research-- ∞ LINK ∞
