> I wish they'd change the name.

I wish they'd change the name of anything that precedes "PD". Schitzotypal PD was already moved to axis I by the it's basically a mild form of schitzophrenia (where did they ever think it was related to one's character?!) hopefully, others will be combined too. I don't see any of them character related, they all seem like mental illness just the same.

OCDP is considered to be more 'neurotic' than 'character'-related (because of higher-level defense mechanisms used)...and can often be adaptive rather than maladaptive.

But most people with strong OCPD are constricted emotionally-where people with strong cluster B traits will be emotionally outward. Cluster B being considered the 'dramatic' personalities.

For ocd vs ocpd-i think the difference is related to OCD anxiety being more in the pre-conscious, where OCPD is conflict mostly more unconscious...where the difference lies in defense mechanisms used. Like your husband, i can always tell when i get 'ocd anxiety'...which stops when the conflict comes to my conscious.

But i'm highly anxious and have different 'types' of was interesting when i began to recognize which are fear-based vs conflict related...anxiety is so common!
