  1. The difference is in obsession. If the floor is washed by a perfectionist , then he will wash it well. If the floor is washed by a person with OCD, they will also wash it well, but they will feel uncomfortable until the floor is washed.

    The perfectionist can simply stop cleaning the floor. The unfinished action may be unpleasant for him – but he will regret it and forget it another time. With obsessions, you can't just take and end the action – it's too painful, it causes too much discomfort.

    At the same time, if a perfectionist feels satisfied with the result of his work, then a person suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder feels only satisfaction from the fact that his head has stopped itching “you have to do it, you have to do it, you have to do it!”

    Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a medical condition. (A person has obsessive thoughts and is unable to resist them.)

    Perfectionism can be the initial stage of OCD, so if the situation worsens, then you should turn to a specialist.
