Maxime,

My therapist said OCPD traits are among the highest he sees in patients...i don't know how common it is for a person to be pure ocpd, but this site has a good description of the inner world:

http://www.health.am/psy/more/ocpd_history_and_theoretical_perspective/

There's really not alot of material on this outside of books/private articles. Anyway, i think the defense mechanisms, as opposed to symptoms, are more useful in assessing personality traits. Chronic intellectualizing is usually the most obvious sign of ocpd traits, but most people have a mix of defenses, rather than pure ocpd; and often those with ocpd are unaware of all the defenses they use or much of the stuff described in the article anyway. Maybe your doctor has you pinned down as having other traits? Anyway, you can learn more about it and see what resonates. Hope it helps.
