    I'm curious about the origins/etymology of the term "anal-compulsive".
    Who coined it? What was the experimental basis for this terminology?
    Who did the research? Or is this term based solely on theory?

    Thanks in advance.


    Interesting side note - Ben Affleck describes himself as "anal compulsive" in Season 2 Episode 1 of Project Greenlight, which I just laughed my ass off about and then immediately searched out online.
