There is no relationship between OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and OCPD (obsessive compulsive personality disorder), besides the similarity of their names. OCD is easy to distinguish from OCPD, as OCD has obsessions (recurrent intrusive thoughts) and compulsions (compensatory ritualistic behaviors), while OCPD has rigidity and perfectionism as its core features.
