Abstract

Abstract Nine out of 10 randomly chosen patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder OCD) (of different age, sex, and different obsessive-compulsive behavior) stated a preference for answering questions at a computer, over filling out a questionnaire when being assessed for obsessive and compulsive symptons. Psychological distress aroused by the computer test situation was not found. Hypotheses concerning the relationship between required time per scale and level of indecisiveness in the scale are encouraging, but have to be confirmed with a larger sample size.
