    Hold up! There is a section on how to organize socks??! I think my copy is missing that! Is there a part on how to survive in the world as the only female SJ in a household full of NF and SP males? :steam:

    I LOVE the OCD cat!

    But if it wasn't for them screwing everything up, like my awesome corn display, I wouldn't have a job.... Ah, such is life.
    Hahahaha Now that I've read this, I don't think I'll ever be able to mess up another awesome produce display again.

    2. I will not sit on any table in the cafeteria in school unless i've wiped it with a tissue, or if it's spotless.

    Who wants to sit at a dirty table? Also, I know an ESFJ who cleans public bathroom mirrors when she uses the bathroom. lol

    5. My dressing style almost never has bright colours. Anyhow, I don't like anything that's striking or eye catching.


    I really prefer not to stand out either and usually don't but I can't always resist some bright colors in the summer time.


    6. In my closet, everything has to be arranged facing the same direction, and colour co-ordinated (although there's not much to co-ordinate )

    Now this I would like to do but haven't.... yet.

    8. I dont like open ended essays in school. I prefer directed writing.

    YES! I prefer objective exams! I don't do well when people ask me open-ended questions in person either.

    Hangers in the wardrobe, all have to be facing the same way. It is not efficient and time saving if they have been placed in opposite directions.
    My hanger OCD is different. I can't stand when there's a stray hanger(s) in between two items of clothing. It drives me nuts! I have to have all the free hangers altogether in one area of the closet and not hiding in between clothing.

    Oh yes. Planning trip itineraries and schedules is so much fun for me too.

    Yep. You just can't it out of your mind completely until it's done, and done correctly, huh?

    Wikipedia shows that OCD can treated with ECT. Or should that be CET?

    It's more of that it was something I set out to do that day, and when something unexpected about the assignment came up making it 5x more difficult to complete, I wasn't sure how to handle it. I ended up finishing not because it bothered me that it was just unfinished, but it's more like a matter of pride in the ability to complete something as planned. I think that's the difference between the STJ and the SFJ. I won't do something just for the sake of pleasing someone else, but I will do something to prove my level of competence to myself or possibly someone else.

    If I had to explain it, I'd say I'm driven mostly by self-discipline and competence. Both kind of go hand in hand for me. Being able to control myself is the competent thing to do. If I want to know how well I did something, I look to my peers. How well did they do it? What were their circumstances? What were my circumstances? Just because I spend a lot of time on something doesn't mean I did it right. It's about the end product and how well it accomplishes what it was supposed to do.

    The term DCO is silly. There's a name for the disorder that exists for a reason. Rearranging the letters changes the intent of the acronym, making it less of an important title that it should be. Making something organized or arranged correctly just for the sake of doing it is dumb, to me. Like I said, it goes back to my way of thinking that I push myself to do something if it's something that I should be capable of, rather than just because it feels wrong. Like, for instance, my room is a bit messy. But, if I go and clean some of it, what would that accomplish? What difference would the cleaner room after 10 minutes make as compared to 10 minutes before? Why is it necessary?

    But, I have plenty of SJ tendencies. Another example is last night when I wrapping a gift for a coworker. I stopped halfway through because Ne went off telling me a cooler way to do the ribbon to make the gift look more suitable for their wedding colors. So, I went and got 2 colored ribbons, wrapped them around the box. I spent 5 minutes wrapping 2 ribbons around the box because I wanted the space between the bottom of one of the ribbons and the other ribbon to be completely even all around the box. If it's not, it looks like the person who wrapped it doesn't know what they're doing! An amateur! Then I got 2 more ribbons of the same colors for a bow, and did the same thing again making sure the space between the ribbons all around the bow was completely even. Then, I noticed a small streak on one of the ribbons, and thought, "That streak doesn't make it look presentable. It doesn't look clean and polished. I'm getting a new ribbon." I really got into the presentation of the box. :P

    It can also be treated with CBT aka BCT.

    I get how you rationalise it but still that seems a little extreme. Although cute as hell.

    When wrapping gifts esp at christmas, i start out with all the edges being nice and neat and cut appropriately. Although my head will explode if the selotape creases as i am flattening it out on the paper, GRRRRRR. However, as time goes on, i stop caring. People (children) don't really care about the presentation, they want the gift inside.
    A wedding gift is totally different though.

    I do that too.

    My husband and myself have wooden hangers bought from the same place (the wood must match). My eldest daughter has adult white hangers. Some hangers are thicker than others which I notice but it dosen't annoy me.
    My younger daughter and baby boy share the yellow hangers. Eventually my middle child will get white adult hangers. In the closet for the winter coats, I perfer thick white hangers.

    All of the closets have the hangers facing the same direction and the clothes also face the same direction on the hanger.

    It's just a joke. Calm down.


    I really suck at organizing things. I'll try, but things always end up in mass chaos.

    This made me laugh and I can so relate!!! I try to get things gift wrapped whenever possible!

    Giggly, I am in bed and just looked up at my closet and I am the same way!! My husband will take a shirt off the hanger to wear it and then leave. I always have to come back behind and take the hangar out of the clothes and put it with the empty hangars. He knows these things about me...and I swear he does it just for fun!

    I often wipe down the counters. I also often throw away stray straw wrappings on the counter at fast food places. I also arrange and even out displays in stores sometimes.
