Understand the origins of the word “neurotic” and why it may be considered outdated.

Neuroticism is a personality trait and varies in severity. People who are higher on the neuroticism scale tend to be mercurial or moody, and often appear anxious, fearful, easily angered and may have a low frustration tolerance. They are also often envious of individuals who don’t have their disruptive behaviors and tend to act out when they encounter people who aren’t neurotic. Neurotic individuals often have trouble with impulsive behavior, which can be a source of self-sabotage. Here you will find articles about neuroticism and how it can severely impact people’s lives. People who have neurotic behavior are often unaware of how much their habits affect those around them, whether they are close friends or strangers. Learn how to recognize neuroticism, the causes and psychological strategies to help people with these issues.
