This term I had in mind, but it wasn't what I was looking for. For one thing, it is too colloquial for the article I was writing, and also it seems to me that the usage of this word is focused less on the importance of small details and more on the attitude of the person.

I'm mad at myself for not recalling 'meticulous'. Although i needed a stronger word than that, a thesaurus search for meticulous could have given me the others. God damned mental block.

The association with 'fussy', that's certainly a handy word.

Well, now I can use a thesaurus, after looking at the suggestions in the answers. Its hard to use the thesaurus when you don't have a starting point in mind.

comment Should I add a 'that' to this (provided in the body) sentence?
Well good to know all three forms are technically correct, that's where the confusion was coming from .
