Neurotic to the Bone, and Proud About It
When Green Day wrote the song "Basket Case", I'm pretty sure it was for me. 👀
Holly is quite the neurotic, but also very conscientious and open to different perspectives. Alright, now what? The next way to look at your scores is to examine which numbers are furthest away from the 50th percentile. The furthest away is the personality trait that affects you the most, the second one furthest away from 50 will have the next biggest affect on your personality and so on. I scored an 82 in Neuroticism (or 16 in emotional stability depending on which test you take) and 80 in Openness.
According to yourpersonality.net,
I'd like to take this trait back to the store please.
"While neuroticism has its benefits—such as intelligence, humor, more realistic if “cynical” expectations, greater self-awareness, drivenness and conscientiousness, lower risk-taking, and a strong need to provide for others—it is also associated with self-criticism, sensitivity to others and social anxiety, moodiness and anxiety, poorer general health, greater day-to-day strain, and strong negative emotional reactions. As a result, neurotic people on average tend to find romantic, personal, and family relationships more effortful and less successful than desired, have problems keeping jobs, and generally aren’t as satisfied with life."
