Is it right to say that a really strong attitude and stubbornness to do something is really similar to an obsession?
I'll try to explain better what I mean.
Let's take a really good developer or a really good scientist. Very often the reason which is leading him to be so good is the addiction to his work.
For some guys, for example, the respect for the rule should be maniacal.
So, is it possible to state that a strong perfectionism / addiction is often readable as a form of obsessive personality trait? (maybe ego-syntonic, and since not a disorder)
