Individuals with perfectionism or “just right” OCD often experience an overpowering internal sense that the balance, order, place, frequency or position of something is disturbed and must be corrected. It can be the spoken or written word, touch, feel, sound, or smell of something that is not ‘just right.’ The individual with ‘just right’ OCD often performs endless repetitions of ordinary tasks out of frustration that they are not ‘perfect’ or ‘just right.’ Touching and tapping, symmetry, ordering and arranging, perfectionism and counting can all be part of the rituals related to ‘just right’ OCD.
