Fixated on faces -- Is this OCD?
I have, for as long as I can remember, been fascinated by facial features. I didn't realize how unusual this was until recently. In meetings at work I often lose track of the discussion because I am analyzing faces. I like to look at the shapes of each feature and how they move when the person speaks. I mentally fix features that don't look quite right to me. I wouldn't be concerned except that I am paying attention to faces and not what's being said, and plus I'm guessing it's a bit unnerving to those around me.
I don't think this is BDD because I am not negatively obsessed with my own features, although I do occassionally stare at my own features and mentally fix those, too. But I don't perceive myself as ugly or feel compelled to visit a plastic surgeon.
I try to stop and force myself to look down at my notes, but I can only do that for a short period of time before I'm back looking at facial features again.
Does this sound like an OCD tendency? Anyone experience something like this?
