Thanks SGH
I'm not trying to "diagnose" myself. Just trying to educate myself and am running across some things that "sound familiar" :)
I don't really want to see a therapist. I don't want to get put on medicine. I already know I have OCD, and I deal with it. I've heard a lot of bad things about being medicated, and I really don't think it's a necessity for me.
Thanks for all your input!
"However, if those aspects are excessive and inconsistent with subculture norms, it could be considered as magical thinking."

of course they are inconsistent with norms.....not sure what you mean by being inconsistent with SUBCULTURE norms.
I like to educate myself too because I am naturally drawn to people that are hyper and eccentric and artsy and fun loving but later usually figure out that those people are very selfish and narcissistic and bored to tears when it comes to engaging in a conversation and being curious about who I am. It is always about them. In college most of the people I've made as "friends" are like how I described above and even though it looks like they are having tons of fun and having the perfect upbeat life is near impossible to get to know them because their guard or wall is up and it makes a true friendship near impossible or highly tedius and overwhelming for me- although on their perception they may find it to be totally comfortable but again for me it is an uphill battle. I personally find those artsy and fashionable people to be alluring and splendid but I guess I realize that they are not for me. And about me I am fashionable and health conscious and social but I think I am not seen for who I am because of their personality disorder traits.
