Do psychopaths suffer from OCD?


No. Never. OCD is about one’s urges being in conflict with an overly aggressive conscience. Psychopaths lack conscience. Psychopaths can obsess about their appearance and spend hours preening themselves and being compulsive about their beauty rituals or the trim of their car. But their obsessive-compulsiveness is narcissism-mediated, not conflict-mediated, and is therefore pseudo-OCD, not real OCD. When actresses say ‘I’m soooo OCD’, they’re really saying that they’re psychopathically preoccupied with their own image.
