There's no doubt that our brains like order - symmetry, self-repeating patterns, perfect alignments, and intuitive placement. Seeing such satisfying pictures pleases our mind and makes it easy to understand our surroundings. Imperfect of flawed things, on the other hand, causes us to pause and do a double-take, annoying the hell out of the perfectionist inside us. Now, if you are an OCD-prone person, scroll down carefully, unless you wish to have a masochistic session looking at these pictures.

These photos of broken patterns, imperfect symmetry, counter-intuitive placement and construction fails are guaranteed to drive you bonkers. Undoubtedly, it is highly likely to start seeing everything crooked after looking at these not-so-funny pictures, so consider yourself warned again.

Do you have any OCD pictures that disturbs the heck out of you? Share them below so that we can annoy people together!

As much as this messes up with my OCD, this one was on purpose - it's a piece of art in a subway station in Lisbon by Eduardo Nery.
