Results: What was obtained from factor analysis (principal components analysis) and varimax rotation showed seven factors justifying a total of 48.82% of the obsessive compulsive questionnaire variance. The reliability coefficients of Cronbach's alpha for questionnaire components ranged between 0.63% and 0.84%. It was also found that the reliability coefficients ranged between 0.58 and 0.79 which were all significant at α =0.01.Besides, the reliability of the questionnaire used was also tested with regard to its components and internal consistency, that were satisfactory.
