OCPD is totally different from OCD. People with OCPD are rigid and perfectionistic, and have very high standards that they impose on themselves and others. They have high need for control. It is related to anxiety. OCPD is ego syntonic, while OCD is ego dystonic.
My husband was reading one of the books on OCD I had left around. He came to me all excited, saying "that's me!". It was the section on OCPD, not OCD. :)
