> I would also think that Conscientious Style would fit; like the extreme example of the role Jack Nicholson played in the movie As Good as it Gets?.

Hello Jan:
The Nicholson was supposed to suffer from " an obessive- complusive disorder ", and the character had stopped taking his meds.( Remmeber that the writer drops in to see his shrink, after an absence of 2 years ? ) I believe that the character was something very much like Millon's Obdurate Paranoid Personality! Notice how the Nicholson character uses the rules to attack & control others, fears being harmed by others, and has secret compartmentalization? ( The writer's not so secret fear of disease & contagion.... ) Rich
