Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a disorder that affects people of all ages and walks of life. People who suffer from OCD frequently have unwanted thoughts and obsessions urging them to have compulsive behaviors. OCD sufferers feel compelled to perform repetitive rituals that they are unable to resist or break free from.
Most people have obsessive thoughts or compulsions at some point in their lives. However, that doesn’t mean that everyone has OCD. Some people may just like everything to be in order and kept in its right place, and this is completely different from this serious disorder. These people take pleasure in things like neatness, symmetry and color coordination. And when things are out of place and not quite right, it can make them feel light anxiety.
There is a perfectionist in all of us. Humans see patterns everywhere; our brains like order because it makes it easier for the brain to process. Imperfections, flaws and things out of place can be harder for our brain to register. And sometimes they are just not acceptable.
Everyone has that one thing that drives them crazy if it’s not done right. Whether it be dirty dishes being left in the sink or something not being put away after it’s been used, we all have our own quirks.
From wonky windows and upside-down labels to badly fitted cupboard doors and incorrectly packaged food, this collection of “OCD” photos will annoy anyone, never mind someone with compulsive tendencies.
