What some see as obsessive attention and control over detail. Sharon >> I don't think that "housism" is age-related, but if it is, I would suggest that it gets worse as you get older. My personal theory is that early life is reverse entropy, getting more and more organized and intricate. This is balanced by an increase in local environmental entropy; that's why kids don't seem to put anything away! As we get older and entropy starts creeping into our bodies, we start looking for that reverse entropy in our local environment. Getting neater and cleaner, more obsessive about putting things away; staying in control where we can. This is all relative, of course, to your own personal level of entropy control. Just a thought..... -Roger
