So many people use the term "anal": [moon]

"...he's so anal..."
"...she's so anal retentive..."

I simply use the term "shithead". [;D]
What's your definition?

A shithead is not the same thing as someone who's anal.  

A shithead is a worthless person.

Someone who's anal retentive is a persnickity perfectionist/control freak.  Freud coined this great term to describe people with that uptight personaility.  His theory is, people with that attitude are like that because as children they derived pleasure by....uh......holding in their poop.  Seriously.  But Freud had a lot of weird theories.

Do you know the difference between a brown-noser and a shithead?




Depth perception!

"Anal" and "anal retentive" is usually used to refer to someone who is uptight about cleanliness, order, procedure, etc.

It stems from the idea of the "anal" stage of Freudian psychosexual development.  According to Freud, babies learn to achieve gratification from the control of their bowels.  An interruption in sexual development at this point will result in either "anal retentiveness"--which means adult pleasure is derived from order, control, and environmental stability; or "anal expulsiveness" which means than satisfaction is derived from chaos, disorderliness, and unpredictablity.

Note: this was all dragged out of my long-term memories from Psychology 101.  If I'm wrong about any of this, please don't hold it against me.

So, Felix Unger would be "anal"?
Barney Fife would be "shithead"?

I guess if you split the difference between "retentiveness and expulsiveness", you get a lumpy fart?

I didn't understand the definition nor did I know where it came from, so I asked.  Uh-oh.
Now, I've done it!

You mean 3 hours and 600 Q-tips just on that spot under the gas tube is too much?

An anal person is one who is intelligent, observant, and competent enough to combine highly developed organizational skills with an above-average attention to detail.  [:)]

You have this canal where you cannot see.  So if you remove the see from canal you have "anal"

OK!OK! The shocking Truth is I was born a 'breech' !
As I entered this world, they thought I had a little patch of hair down the middle of my head; only it wasn't my head coming out first!
"Oh my.  He's a breech baby", is what the Doctor said.
"Put him back.", is what my Dad said...
Or so I've been told. [:D]
