This is how ideas are implemented as a parasite alien invasion, making it impossible for the individual to free himself from them.

The obsession has represented a mystery to different scholars and students of various ages. There are many differences between the various fields of study, but all appear from the same point: disturbances caused by ideas that are harvested and fixed in the mind of the conscious person without the individual is able to free himself from them.

There have been many studies about the complex mind human and also different ways to call this phenomenon intriguing and frustrating. The first serious study was conducted in the late nineteenth century. In fact, the word for thinking that “haunts” the spirit was first introduced in 1886 by the French psychiatrist J. Falret (Beucha, 1968).


Obsessive Neurosis

The idea obsessive-recognized by the subject as a morbid phenomenon and parasite-enters the normal thought process, truly “cazándolo.” This “idea” however, could counteract the conscious thought or belief, and may persist even when the person is making efforts to get rid of it (Beucha, 1986).

An important feature of this neurosis is the complex ceremonial or ritual involved. The birth of an idea parasitic or obsessive spending involves a special psychic subject in question and triggers events or actions which are prevented to perform (that tends to increase the obsession with the idea and is one of the most important obsessional neurosis: the relationship between the act and powerlessness to act.

The obsessive thoughts come in response to internal issues or concerns that require the verification of truth. “The roof will fall on me.” For example, this idea is implanted in the mind of the subject, and to test the subject is otherwise forced to perform “actions” that deny the idea, and it must be verified in the same way every time, giving three jumps, climbing a ladder and touching the roof, making sure everything is in place.

That’s when a parasitic second idea is implanted: the obsessive idea is now: climb the ladder in exactly the same way as if done differently, the result could be catastrophic, and the roof could fall at any moment.

This mechanism seems to repeat over and over again, creating an endless chain of ideas that seem to have no end. Could be compared with the effect of worms on the theories of relativity alienated the new idea, is the clue to the old idea, transporting the person to a different mental space and time, and this could symbolize the therapeutic work: dig in old ideas, traveling past the original fastenings.

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality

Obsessive Compulsive Personality (TOC personality) as opposed to obsessional neurosis is not a disease itself. It can be defined as “a way of being of the individual variable.”

Neither should be confused with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). The major difference lies in the fact that when we focus on the study of a “personality disorder” is just that: a study of human personality. This means that fixed ideas are more deeply rooted in the structure or architecture of the subject, where the person may be more inflexible to change the “way of being or thinking.”

It basically consists of two characters: “the psicoastenico”And” anal “. Where the character “psicoastenico” gives the sense of “psychological stress” and gives power to the action-here we discover again the dynamic relationship of event-impotence.

In addition, obsessive-compulsive personality brings a high sense of the person to achieve perfection and the usual excitement incomplete. That’s why people with this personality, never reach one hundred percent. Regardless of when people insist on perfection of the work, never achieve total satisfaction.


OCD is a psychiatric syndrome characterized by obsessions and compulsions. Unlike personality OCD, OCD can be considered a serious disease that interferes with day-patient days, making it unable to have a functional life (you can tell which is the criterion that separates the OCD and OCD personality also this is framed from the psychiatric definition of DMS-IV).

Obsessions (first factor) are ego impulses -Images, thoughts, ideas which are perceived as involuntary acts. Compulsions (second factor) are repeated actions that have no meaning by themselves, but “expected” future acts. OCD can be divided more common in: cleaners, checkers, repeaters, collectors, ritualized, numeric, tormented, philosophical and sexual. In addition to the above definitions obsessive frames of mind, at present remains a mystery, since all the causes and etiology of the disease have not been fully clarified.
