dimension # 5
How well do you handle stress?
A person, who scores high on neuroticism,
worries a lot,
is easily upset,
is often irritable,
reacts very emotionally to stress.
Neurotic minds may be more creative, because they
will tend to dwell on problems to a greater degree.
They imagine problems that do not exist.
Researchers found that neurotic people find anxiety-
inducing environments, for example walking in on a
sidewalk in a city, more restorative than being in
traditionally calm environments such as a forrest.
Ideas for people with strong need for stability,
people who have difficulty handling stress:
Communicate your emotions.
Drain the ”anger container.”
Idea for people with little need for stability,
people who handle stress well:
Note for yourself why something will work,
and why it may not work.
