    A good, semi-informal word which is a possible antonym for "easy-going" is "uptight." An "uptight" person is never relaxed, always feels stressed and nervous, and wants everything to be predictable and under control. The exact opposite of an "easy-going" person.

    I think that is rather different. Someone who is easy-going doesn't mind about options being chosen. Someone who minds is perhaps fussy, particular, pernickety (BrE)/persnickety (AmE) or fastidious.
