Neuroticism is a personality trait that varies in severity. People higher on the neuroticism scale tend to be mercurial or moody and may appear anxious, fearful, angry, or easily frustrated. They may envy individuals without disruptive behaviors and struggle to maintain their emotions. Neurotic individuals often showcase impulsive behavior, which can be a source of self-sabotage. However, noting that some neuroticism may result from a mental illness and not one’s personality may be helpful. In these cases, neurotic symptoms can be treated. 

This page contains articles about neuroticism and how it can severely impact people’s lives. People with neurotic behavior are often unaware of how much their habits affect those around them, whether they are close friends or strangers. Through these articles, you may learn how to recognize neuroticism, its causes, and psychological strategies to help people cope with these challenges.
