It will probably not come as a surprise to some people that I scored 100% in the Playbuzz test… However, you could argue as to whether the short quiz demeans people genuinely suffering from crippling OCD, as opposed to simply being a bit of fun that tests your powers of observation and fast thinking, whilst happily supporting the idea you are a "a bit OCD".
Actually, I am, "a bit OCD"… but, no, because:
Obsessive behaviour falls into several clinical categories, each with it’s own spectrum and check list. So, far me, from a self-diagnostic I score extremely highly for an Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (i.e. NOT OCD). My diagnosis, an assessment from a highly qualified neuro-psychologist, is that I "scored very highly" for OCPD, specifically Anankastic Personality Disorder, a specific neurosis, that is life-interfering, as opposed to simply being just prone to obsessiveness. Rather different from a "spot the odd one out" type of quiz. eh.
There again, if you throw an IQ test like Raven’s Progressive Matrices I score in excess of 180, as opposed to a ‘mere’ 150 to 160 for supervised tests like Mensa’s Cattell III B test. I imagine for Mensa’s Culture Fair based test I’d also score over 180. This point is somewhat related though. Psychological research suggests that people on the high functioning autism spectrum (think Bill Gates rather than Rainman), tend to do better on observation based cognitive tests, and are prone to OCPD and obsessive interests.

OCD, OCD, OCD!
You have a killer eye for spotting the tiniest, most invisible inaccuracies, errors and mistakes. And it’s very important to you to correct them 🙂
This special combination is what makes you a perfectionist in everything you do. It’s great that you want things to go the right way and always ready to fight for it, but you also need to give yourself a break sometimes. It’s hard (and not always necessary) to be 100% perfect all the time.
It’s probably ironic that the logo for the charity ‘OCD-UK’ makes me twitchy, but they do have a good page on What is NOT OCD, covering the difference between obsessive hobbies, addictive Impulse Control Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD).
