This question came up early today in this forum.

(MedlinePlus)The inheritance pattern of OCD is unclear. Overall, the risk of developing this condition is greater for first-degree relatives of affected individuals (such as siblings or children) as compared to the general public. For unknown reasons, the risk of inheriting the disorder appears to be higher in some families than in others. However, most people who have a close relative with OCD will not develop the condition themselves.


We have an acquaintance who is a hoarder which is an OCD subtype. Her hoarding is debilitating; her house is unlivable. Her late mother had a mania for buying hats. The sort of fancy hats like women wear to the Kentucky Derby or in an Easter parade. When she died there were hundreds or more hats in boxes all over her house.

Most people are obsessive and compulsive to a degree. A certain amount of doublechecking avoids a lot of problems. For example, when I use a saw I follow the dictum "measure twice, cut once".

    I think OCD is a personality trait, some personalities seem more prone to it then others...so the question remains, how did we end up with the personality we have and are?

    The ol' nature vs nuture debate. My OCD isn't debilitating, just a little inconvenient. But I've been aware of it for a long time and have learned how to keep it in check.

    My son is a hoarder. He's also in the autism spectrum. And his life is a mess. He refuses to seek therapy. And he has caused Sheri and I a lot of trouble that has already impacted our retirement. Very stressful situation.

    I'm a lot like my dad and others among his siblings.

    Whether that's genetic or not, I'm not certain. I suspect that it is.
