Yes, there is. The Obsessive Compulsive Cognitions Working Group (1997) noted that the most common thought themes found in OCD are the following:
• Responsibility: A person with OCD often believes that he or she is responsible for preventing bad things from happening.
• Uncertainty: Individuals with OCD believe as if they cannot tolerate uncertainty and that everything has to be absolutely clear.
• Perfectionism: An individual with OCD believes that everything must be perfect in order to avoid any form of critique from others. Or, she believes that she must do things perfectly in order to have a perfect life, or perfect knowledge, or perfect cleanliness, etc.
• Control: A person with OCD believes he must be in control of his thoughts and not think about anything bad or immoral, or have any intrusive thoughts at all.
• Thought Importance: The OCD belief that thinking something is almost as bad as doing it, or the belief that now that you have thought of something, it is more likely to actually occur. This is also referred to as Thought Action Fusion, thoughts are somehow fused with actions, so if the thought occurs, the action must also occur.
• Dangerousness: A person with OCD believes that situations are far more dangerous or threatening than chance or probability would ever predict.
