Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, or OCPD, is one of the more prevalent personality disorders and affects 7.9 percent of the general population. In some circles OCPD is referred to as Anankastic Personality Disorder. 

Rigid adherence to rules and regulations and an overwhelming need for order and personal control are the primary characteristics of obsessive compulsive personality disorder. People living with OCPD can be inflexible, they are perfectionists and often unwilling to yield responsibilities to others.
