Affiliation needs: Refers to the degree to which a person values giving or receiving warmth and affection and enjoys intimate and close social bonds with others.

Trait negative emotionality: Refers to the degree to which a person is vigilant and cautious in life, concerned about making mistakes, and focused on what went wrong rather than what went right; also refers to the degree to which a person experiences anxiety, worries, or is overly concerned about the future. 

Trait positive emotionality: Refers to the degree to which a person feels excited, enthusiastic, energized, or passionate about what is happening in the current moment. 

Inhibited emotional expressivity: Refers to the degree to which a person attempts to control, inhibit, restrain, or suppress how he or she expresses inner feelings or emotions; individuals scoring high on this trait tend to be understated in how they express emotions and/or may report that they rarely experience emotions. 

Moral certitude: Refers to compulsive desires to plan for the future, extreme dutifulness, hypermorality, and hyperperfectionism; individuals scoring high on this domain set high standards and lack the flexibility to loosen these standards when appropriate. 

Compulsive striving: Motivated to act according to what may happen and/or in order to achieve a long-term goal rather than according to how they are feeling in the moment; they delay immediate gratification or pleasure in order to achieve long-term goals and may persist in stressful activities in order to achieve a desired goal, despite feedback that persistence may be harmful to them; compulsive immediate fixing occurs, whereby any problem is treated as urgent, and this behavior leads to immediate yet ill-timed and detrimental results. 

High detail-focused processing: Refers to superior detail-focused as opposed to global processing, insistence on sameness, hypervigilance for small discrepancies, and preference for symmetry over asymmetry; an OC client high on this trait might tend to notice grammatical mistakes that others miss, or to quickly detect a missing data point in a complex chart.
