|You May Be a Bit Obsessive Compulsive…|
OCD? Do they mean OCPD? I’ve also been called anal-retentive and a perfectionist… pick your psychopathology. I’m also eclectic, downright idiosyncratic, and beyond quirky to classically eccentric. So what else is new?
Hey—some of those can be good things, ya know! ;^)
Hmmm…it said: You May Be a Bit Histrionic… I got a good laugh about that one over at Wikipedia. I think we can all rest in the “be a bit” disclaimer ;)
They may need just a few more questions to provide a better profile. I could have gone with three different answers on most of their questions!
When I did a placement exam after my graduate degree in counselling psychology I discovered that nearly 75% and over 80% of medical doctors fall somewhere on the obsessive compulsive scale… Likely it is part nature.. and part nurture (the forming power of medical school).
Yikes… “a bit” is a nice caveat, given it’s not exactly a scientific test — I could have gone differently on a number of questions too. But slightly OCD… well, I won’t deny it vehemently. ;^)
Len, “meticulous” is so much nicer of a word… and I would say is a good quality in doctors, accountants, and lawyers… provided of course that the latter are your own.
