Question: what is the difference between obsessive-compulsive personality TRAITS and DISORDER? My doctor said i have obsessive-compulsive personality traits, is this the same with obsessive-compulsive personality disorder?

Answer: The traits and the disorder are not the same thing. If you have a personality with obsessive traits, it means that you may be too orderly, or pay too much attention to detail, or worry too much about something that happened in the past, etc. If you had the disorder, you would have obsessions and/or compulsions all the time and you would be extremely distressed and could not lead a normal life. Did you ever watch that movie "As Good as It Gets"? That guy suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder.
