2. Rationalethe need of aThe scale was developed out ofmore culturally valid scale ofOCPD.There is a lack of OCPD scales as comparedto scales of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). 3. FrameworkThe conceptual framework of the tool was created via theassessment of the characteristics of a person with an obsessive-compulsive disorder.composed of four subscalespreoccupation with details, rules, lists, order,organization or schedulePerfectionismextreme dedication to work and efficiencyand need for control and emotional withdrawal. 4. the Color Pyramid Test (CPT)The CPT will be used injunction withthe developed OCPD scale to affirm the character of thosewith OCPD using colors or patterns.The administration of the two tests allows the researchersto capture the personality of therespondents using a projective and pencil-and-paper test. 5. FeasibilityThis OCPD Scale and Color Pyramid Test are very Anyone of any agepractical to use today.could take the test. The syntax and useof words in the test are very simple, evenundergraduates and children could take this. 6. The Color Pyramid Test (CPT) is easy to administer,and is applicable over a wide range of ages, educational These tests areand cultural background.very convenient to use andcould be easily reproduced. 7. How the Tests are administeredObsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD) ScaleThe questionnaire is composed of thirty-six subjectivequestions and it uses a four level Likert Scale: StronglyAgree, Agree, Disagree and StronglyDisagree. The Neutral or Neither Agree/ Disagree of thesaid scale was eliminated to easily filter nonpolar answers.The examinee will encircle the numbers 4, 3, 2, or 1, his/heranswer corresponds to the question. After which, theresearchers will tally the scores. Anyone who has ascore above 60% (87 raw score) wouldautomatically be qualified for OCPD. 8. Color Pyramid Test (CP-T)On a white paper, pyramids with fifteen fieldsare illustrated. There are 15 colored chips ofthe 10 colorsblack, gray, white,brown, red, yellow, blue, violet,green, and orange. 9. The examiner will let the examinee place those chipson the fields in any way they prefer. Colors may berepeated. Theywill make threepyramidsgood-looking, betterlooking and best looking. The examinerswill jot down the colors for each pyramid andinterpret it afterwards. 10. Actual Test 11. ObservationsThere were no major striking responses when the testswere conducted.The examineessmiled, laughed, and giggledwhen they read the OCPD scale saying that they were this andthat.Some people were shocked when the researchers told themabout their scores which would yield OC tendencies thusthey may haveacknowledging thatrestricted or restrainedmannerisms in some aspects oftheir personality. 12. Comparing the two tests, the examiners took moretime in the CPT because some changed colors fromtime to time and some would imagine what would bethe output first. It took them about 15 minutesmaximum when they answered the two testsColorPyramid Test and the OCPD Scale. 13. ValidityTo further validate the OCPD scale, they used a ColorPyramid Test (CPT). Based from the interpretation ofthe colors of the Color Pyramid Test (CPT), the colorsblue, orange, green and brownare the colors likely associated with OCPD.The researchers assume that there should be afavorable amount of responses using those colors aswell as garnering a moderate amount ofcorrelation among those colors and scores inthe OCPD scale. 14. ResultsBased from the table, those who possess anobsessive-compulsive character scored highly in theprimary colors: red, blue, green 15.

High frequencies of colorsgreen and bluewould tell that a person is very logical and reasonable.They are considered to be rigid and also by the book typesof person. They have logical ways, paths, and flows onfixing and scheduling things. They would want anoverwhelming need for order, would most likely unwillingto yield their responsibilities to others and would have astrong sense of righteousness about the ways thingsshould be done. 17. Surprisingly, the correlation among the colors used inthe pyramid test and scores in the OCPD scale onlygarnered weak to moderate correlations. The highestblack, blue,among these areand brown. 18.

The higher the color black would indicate that there isan increase in escaping affective or stimulatingaffirm the subscalesituations whichof emotional withdrawal inthe OCPD scale. 20. The color brown has positive moderatecorrelation with the scores in the OCPD scale,although it acquired the highest value ofcorrelation among all colors. The increase ofbrown indicates that there is high energy,higher resistance and high levels ofproductivity. 21. It is significant, because it validates the subscale ofextreme dedication of work andefficiency due to the interpretation ofbrown as an indicator of productivity. Inanother study, they found a significant increase in theuse of brown color for those identified withObsessive-Compulsive Personality disorder. 22. However, since blue is one of the frequent colorsappearing for those who scored high in the OCPD andblue has one of the highest correlations among allcolors, although only third behind black and brown,the researchers has come up with the conclusion thatpeople who scored high in the OCPD scale wouldchoose blue and higher scores in the OCPD scale wereassociated with the increased percentage of the colorblue. 23. This indicates that people with high score in the OCPDscale suffer from suppression of feelings and emotions,an over controlling attitude,resulting inwhich seems to be associated withfeelings of inferiority,dissatisfaction and ambivalence. 24. ReliabilityReliability coefficients are reported ranging from .047to 0.81 with a mean of 0.61 for the color pyramid test.The reliability coefficient of the color pyramid testseemed no better or worse than other personalityassessment. 25. Significance of the Study / ApplicationsThe researchers decided to pursue this test because itwill be of great contribution in our society today.OCPD scales are very limited and restricted thats whythe researchers developed a precise scale.The researchers would also like to combine a paper-pen test & a projective test to make a more valid andstable study.This research will provide norm referencesand could be applied to everyone and anyone. Iffurther improved, this test would confirm who hasOCPD tendencies in our society today. 26. Since the researchers were able to establish acorrelation among the colors, brown andblue, and respondents who scored highly onthe OCPD scale and blue as one of thefrequently appearing color, theincremental validity of the colorpyramid test has increased and as an effect,the color pyramid test could now be used topredict or determine OCPD via its correlatedcolors, blue and brown. 27. Incremental validity is the gain invalidity resulting from adding new predictors to an The CPTexisting selection system.maybe preferred indetermining OCPD becauseof its feasibility. 28. ContaminantsFactors that may influence the color preference colorduring the test may include:availability, time limit/s orrestriction, mood, or for thesake of doing so.
