The answer to our question yersterday is :
‘A compulsion secondary to obsession’ this is a feature of the obsessive-compulsive disorder(OCD). Obsessions are persistent thoughts or mental images that are subjectively experienced as intrusive and alien and characteristically provoke various levels of anxiety. Compulsions are repetitive acts, behaviors, or thoughts designed to counteract the anxiety elicited by the obsessions. The diagnosis of OCD is reserved for those patients with significant impairments in their occupational and social lives. These patients are preoccupied with rules, regulations, orderliness, neatness, details, and the achievement of perfection.
So dear readers, beware of doing things to the extreme. Enjoy!
