Just about everything...
If I'm taking eggs out of the carton, I take one from the corner, then one from he opposite corner. The last four eggs are in the middle.I put my glasses at the same place at night, the bike lock in the same slot in my backpack when using it, et al - these mostly so I can actually FIND them.
I don't think it's OCD but I rage when students staple the pages of a lab write-up out of order, so I have to search around while grading. (I think it's just good manners to get your freakin' lab in the CORRECT ORDER)It also bugs me when the pages are stapled *just slightly off* so they are not aligned. And when they leave the "dandruff" on spiral-notebook paper.
I don't know, I think this is one of those things where it has to be not-useful to count as part of a disorder (like no one is phobic of bears in Canada). Symmetrical egg boxes are less likely to fall over, after all. I do think the main thrust of your argument is correct, though. Mental illnesses and learning disabilities are usually a normal human experience gone horribly wrong.
