How Neurotic Are You Really?
On a scale of one to Woody Allen, how neurotic are you?
How do you feel about the following statements? "I am relaxed most of the time."
I become frustrated very easily.
I get overwhelmed by simple tasks when I am hungry or tired.
I tend to focus on the worst case scenario when things go wrong.
I often worry about things I have no control over.
I have frequent mood swings.
I react negatively to most forms of criticism.
I remain calm under pressure.
I often lose my composure.
I like to keep my surroundings neat and tidy at all times.
I care deeply about the opinions of others.
Other people's emotions have a big impact on my mood.
I spend a lot of time reflecting on myself and my actions.
I often feel blue.
I often skip out on everyday activities due to anxiety.
Take a deep breath and relax. Everything is going to be OK. So you may be naturally neurotic, however this doesn't have to be something negative. It means that you are in tune with your emotions and care deeply about the outcome of a particular situation. Instead of focusing on the worst case scenario, try remembering that it is very unlikely that it will occur. When negative emotions overwhelm you, don’t forget to take time to yourself to relax and unwind.

You are by no means emotionally unstable, however just like all of us, you can still display slightly neurotic behavior every once in a while. While you may not be prone to things like panic attacks or tantrums, you might act out if you feel as though you are being threatened or put in harm’s way. A little bit of neurosis is normal, but in general you remain calm and are free from persistent negative feelings! Way to go!
