What is typical obsessive compulsive behaviour disorder?

Dr. Pamela Pappas

Obsessive Compulsive: The person would have obsessive ideas that go through his/her mind continuously, and have compulsions to do certain behaviors. The person cannot let go of the idea or focus effectively on anything else. Compulsive behaviors include things like washing hands over and over because of fear of contamination with germs; checking things like stoves or locking doors; also counting things endlessly.
