Last night's episode was fascinating. According to my Mom, Viraj's case has really gone too far and she could foresee no proper cure for him. She thought that premature death due to accident or a suicide is a more likely outcome. Grim prognosis both.


If any of you have any knowledge as to how this condition be cured, please share. This is a request to all silent friends too. I am also giving a detailed analysis of the condition. Read on and share your views. Please, pretty please.

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder is characterized by a preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and mental and interpersonal control, at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency. This

When rules and established procedures do not dictate the correct answer, decision making may become a time-consuming, often painful process. Individuals with Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder may have such difficulty deciding which tasks take priority or what is the best way of doing some particular task that they may never get started on anything.

They are prone to become upset or angry in situations in which they are not able to maintain control of their physical or interpersonal environment, although the anger is typically not expressed directly. For example, a person may be angry when service in a restaurant is poor, but instead of complaining to the management, the individual ruminates about how much to leave as a tip. On other occasions, anger may be expressed with righteous indignation over a seemingly minor matter.

People with this disorder may be especially attentive to their relative status in dominance-submission relationships and may display excessive deference to an authority they respect and excessive resistance to authority that they do not respect.

Individuals with this disorder usually express affection in a highly controlled or stilted fashion and may be very uncomfortable in the presence of others who are emotionally expressive. Their everyday relationships have a formal and serious quality, and they may be stiff in situations in which others would smile and be happy (e.g., greeting a lover at the airport). They carefully hold themselves back until they are sure that whatever they say will be perfect. They may be preoccupied with logic and intellect.

Symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder

A pervasive pattern of preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and mental and interpersonal control, at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by four (or more) of the following:

  • Is preoccupied with details, rules, lists, order, organization, or schedules to the extent that the major point of the activity is lost
  • Shows perfectionism that interferes with task completion (e.g., is unable to complete a project because his or her own overly strict standards are not met)
  • Is excessively devoted to work and productivity to the exclusion of leisure activities and friendships (not accounted for by obvious economic necessity)
  • Is overconscientious, scrupulous, and inflexible about matters of morality, ethics, or values (not accounted for by cultural or religious identification)
  • Is unable to discard worn-out or worthless objects even when they have no sentimental value
  • Is reluctant to delegate tasks or to work with others unless they submit to exactly his or her way of doing things
  • Adopts a miserly spending style toward both self and others; money is viewed as something to be hoarded for future catastrophes
  • Shows significant rigidity and stubbornness

As with all personality disorders, the person must be at least 18 years old before they can be diagnosed with it.

Obsessive-Compulsive personality disorder is approximately twice as prevalent in males than females, and occurs in about 1 percent of the general population.

Like most personality disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive personality disorder typically will decrease in intensity with age, with many people experiencing few of the most extreme symptoms by the time they are in the 40s or 50s.

How is Obsessive-compulsive Personality Disorder Diagnosed?

Personality disorders such as obsessive-compulsive personality disorder are typically diagnosed by a trained mental health professional, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist. Family physicians and general practitioners are generally not trained or well-equipped to make this type of psychological diagnosis. So while you can initially consult a family physician about this problem, they should refer you to a mental health professional for diagnosis and treatment. There are no laboratory, blood or genetic tests that are used to diagnose obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.

Many people with obsessive-compulsive personality disorder don't seek out treatment. People with personality disorders, in general, do not often seek out treatment until the disorder starts to significantly interfere or otherwise impact a person's life. This most often happens when a person's coping resources are stretched too thin to deal with stress or other life events.

A diagnosis for obsessive-compulsive personality disorder is made by a mental health professional comparing your symptoms and life history with those listed here. They will make a determination whether your symptoms meet the criteria necessary for a personality disorder diagnosis.

Causes of Obsessive-compulsive Personality Disorder

Researchers today don't know what causes obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. There are many theories, however, about the possible causes of obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Most professionals subscribe to a biopsychosocial model of causation -- that is, the causes of are likely due to biological and genetic factors, social factors (such as how a person interacts in their early development with their family and friends and other children), and psychological factors (the individual's personality and temperament, shaped by their environment and learned coping skills to deal with stress). This suggests that no single factor is responsible -- rather, it is the complex and likely intertwined nature of all three factors that are important. If a person has this personality disorder, research suggests that there is a slightly increased risk for this disorder to be "passed down" to their children.

Treatment of Obsessive-compulsive Personality Disorder

Treatment of obsessive-compulsive personality disorder typically involves long-term psychotherapy with a therapist that has experience in treating this kind of personality disorder. Medications may also be prescribed to help with specific troubling and debilitating symptoms.

To get cured, it is very important that the patient is willing to be cured but usually OCPD victims consider themselves too smart and too perfect to go in for any kind of treatment. It involves self help, medication and support system. What my Mom was saying that his is an advanced caseand once psychopathic tendencies set in it becomes difficult to manage. Wish to know more about its cure.


Sorry for the repeat

To treat a case of any ailment it is important that the patient cooperates but usually a patient of OCPD lives in denial and considers himself or herself far superior than even the docLOL. Socially such people are dismissed as villains rather than victims. Instead of sympathising with him and trying to find a solution, even dadi is all set to expose him as a fiend. Can a person with psychopathic tendencies be cured? No, says Mom. Dunno, say I.

Sorry for the repeat
that is the LAST thing that i want to hear!! Not even last...i never want to hear this..I am willing to see him getting cured...agar jhanvi ki baat nahi sunega than he should listen to his Baby V..If Cvs do show him got killed in ANY form or ANY ways...i would never watch the show again...
 
 
Is unable to discard worn-out or worthless objects even when they have no sentimental value
now this one...i am not too sure of how V related with this point..as he mentioned that every single thing in his palace has sentimental value. he was very very upset when the statue broke...so this point might not be part of V's illness. P.S. he was talking to statue after trying to fix it Properly!
 
Is overconscientious, scrupulous, and inflexible about matters of morality, ethics, or values (not accounted for by cultural or religious identification)

Shows significant rigidity and stubbornness

Correct! In V's case. Stubborn: junior Viraj only...doctor ya bhagvan kese decide karenge ke humari life me kya hone wala hai..ye to hume hi tey karna hai...then seeking for all possible ways to make sure that it's a MALE kid and not Female.. infact Tantrik incident.. Rigidity: the way he treats Jhanvi after she breaks his rules, harsh punishments..Insecurity comes into play some where along these lines.

Shows perfectionism that interferes with task completion (e.g., is unable to complete a project because his or her own overly strict standards are not met)

"ye jhanvi ko kitni baar samjhana padega that everything has to be perfact, sab cheeze time se honi chahiye"Smile Alarm clock for every task..infact his shower time: 7:30-7:40, his clothes in the wardrobe..Table mannersTongue and list goes on..
 
Is preoccupied with details, rules, lists, order, organization, or schedules to the extent that the major point of the activity is lost
 
same as i mentioned in above point..and Client's meeting scene..the way he wanted Webconference...more on food and organization details..then Project itself..which was the basic reason why he wanted things that way!Big smile
 
 
P.S. Very good information!Star
