    A Freudian thing so says wiki.

    "The term anal-retentive (or anally retentive, anal retentive), commonly abbreviated to "anal", is used conversationally to describe a person with such attention to detail that the obsession becomes an annoyance to others, and can be carried out to the detriment of the anal-retentive person. The term derives from Freudian psychoanalysis."

    Anal retentive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Just looked it up. To paraphrase the article, it seems that Clement Freud used to crap himself whilst being potty trained. Hope thats helped out.

    Some people that are wound so tight, are called anal retentive

    My mom calls my brothers wife anal retentive, because she makes lists for everything, is like an obsessive clean freak, and goes to bed when there's a party. haha!

    Has no one heard of the term anal retentive? Part of Freuds stages

    Oral
    Anal
    Phallic...

    Read this to help you understand. The premise, is if a child gets stuck at one stage, due to lack of parenting, abuse, or neglect, that child may have unresolved issues as a grown up.
    Freud's Psychosexual Stages of Development: Oral, Anal, Phallic, Latency, Genital

    Anal Stage: 18 months - 3.5 years (approx.)

    Physical focus: anus (elimination). Until now the baby has had it pretty easy. Now baby is supposed to control bowels. Freud believed baby뭩 sexual pleasure centred around the anus at this time.
    Psychological theme: self-control/obedience. These things are not just related to toilet training but also the baby must learn to control urges and behaviours (terrible twos). What goes wrong here is either parents being too controlling or not controlling enough (Freud was a great believer in moderation).
    Adult character: anally retentive (rigid, overly organised, subservient to authority) vs. anally expulsive (little self-control, disorganised, defiant, hostile).


    There dug..that is where I got the word from.

    Looks like he's not going to be a list maker then, just a little shit by the sound of it.
    (as an aside, can we take it then, that according to fraud there are only two types of people?)

    Surely you don't use Fraudian models for standards for any sort?

    What does 'anal retentive' mean?. Allow me to illustrate........

    So head office in Shanghai want a breakdown of the upcoming costs for visas for the rest of the year, OK fair enough. So we reply explaining that only one person needs a visa at a cost of x each time (The rest of us are sorted). That person has to make two more runs before the end of this year and so therefore the total forecast cost is 2x...

    Simple right......... No. THEY WANT A FUCKING TABLE, THEY WANT A FUCKING TABLE on an excel sheet outlining the above and so this afternoon I have to completely waste my time spending 10-15minutes knocking up a fucking 2X3 excel table because the cunts in HO are so fucking anal.

    THAT is what anal retentive means.
