One thing not on the list and that always bothered me, was a teacher failing to erase all of an example on the chalkboard. The tails on the lower case Gs and Js were the most annoying. After this took place, my gnat-sized attention span was History.
I wanted to comment on this post, but it would make the number of posts uneven (43) so I hope someone posts another comment real soon...please.....do it now.....hurry.....come on man...i'm freakin out man!
yep +Chris Lichowicz i agree...i think the list stopping at 19 was my biggest ocd issue...& i used to call it being a perfectionist as a kid...but as an adult i now appreciate the off kilter, less perfect things in life, but if it's related to architecture i wanna see plumb lines & parallel lines so the biggest ocd pics for me were the ones of misplaced or uneven tile flooring :/ thanks for sharing +Mike Clancy
Everything in the universe is balanced. People like balance, live in balance. Things that are out of balance tend to be the things that disrupt nature. This bothers people, it doesn't mean they are OCD.
#7: This is more or less how I laid the tiles in our living/office area (40 sq m)... My main excuse is that I had furniture everywhere that needed to be shifted each time as I put in PEX underfloor heating pipes, screed and finally got around to the tiling!
BTW, my wife finds it a lot more aesthetically pleasing than the boring straight lines you get from most 'professionals'...
Wow, I wanted to reach into the screen and fix them!!! Dang pencils.....lol.. And I can't stand it when we have Wacky Wednesday sometimes at school... Ppl have their hair down on one side and a messy bun on the other... Different socks, shoes, bracelets.... ARGH! I don't really show that I'm aggravated, I just wanna punch them.... :P
haha, most of those things drive me crazy. I constantly straighten things in my place and even my friends houses. I even eat my candy in order of color and when someone comes and takes one not the color I'm eating it drives me crazy
I have OCD and I wasn't able to finish looking at the stuff. I made it to the Lego thing. The first thing I thought and experienced when the site opened, with the first image, was an incredible wide-eyed gasp (and surprised myself) at the sight of the pencils. Since I couldn't straighten them, I had the immediate ability to imagine it. I saw them in my mind with all the tips sharpened to the right length and all of them turned the same direction. I've never been diagnosed with OCD but after awhile you start to notice your own idiosyncrasies at things that aren't perfectly stacked, lined up, straightened, etc. I don't have an extreme case that would keep me from living my life but it can be annoying. I have to correct all of my errors as much as I can find them. I have to straighten my nick-knacks when I pass the shelves they're on, and don't get me started about my hair. I have to complete the process or something feels incomplete and perhaps a tad askew. Hm.
One often overlooked is the proverbial paint defect - RIGHT OPPOSITE THE TOILET!! One of my bathrooms has one that more than one "guest" has commented looks vaguely obscene, a few said definitely. So, how do you drive an OCD paint client insane?
I had to head into my office and sharpen all the pencils to the same length just to offset the effects from this. I would have spent hours carefully rotating that damn fig newton workout opening the package. Worst for me are the tiles, so damn permanent!
ocd is made-up of 3 distinct parts..the above type is just one of them ( and they're very different from each other ), but all have one thing in common : anxiety..is an anxiety dis-order first and foremost
I can appreciate the beauty on things being out of kilter but if its something like pencils lined up but not perfect or a dish or pan thats not quite clean, it drives me nuts. I can't stand it when people do a job but they half-ass it.
I get annoyed by unused time on the microwave simply because I want to be able to look at the clock. Of course if the clock isn't set, that bugs me even more but I think thats more just that I want what I want when I want it. Lol
#6 gets me. I must fix the toy, but otherwise I will use this as a weapon of mass destruction.
Every male in the house will intentionally leave one second on the microwave EVERY SINGLE TIME just because of the reaction it causes. My daughter made that and issue with the boys and then it became a requirement. :-D
