You Can Tame Your Neurosis

By Gigi Vorgan and Gary Small, MD

When people begin to discover which personality trait or traits are holding them back from reaching their potential, many identify their degree of emotional stability/neuroticism as a starting point for change. Individuals who score low on this personality domain tend to overthink things and have difficulty making decisions. They often overreact to any type of threat, frustration, or loss, and their temperamental nature may make them feel like they are constantly on an emotional rollercoaster.

Neurotic feelings and behaviors are associated with a greater risk for mental and physical health problems, challenges at work, and marital difficulties. People who score low on this personality domain are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, insomnia, substance abuse and eating disorders. Studies have shown neuroticism to be associated with cardiovascular disease, eczema, asthma, and irritable bowel syndrome.

On average, neurotic individuals live shorter and less fulfilling lives. One reason for the shorter lifespan is that highly neurotic people often make unhealthy lifestyle choices. They are more apt to smoke cigarettes and have a greater likelihood of becoming dependent on alcohol or drugs. Low emotional stability scores are also linked to risky sexual behavior, impulsiveness, a lack of assertiveness.

And yet, despite these clear disadvantages to being neurotic, a modest degree of neurosis may actually confer some benefits. So-called “healthy neurotics” tend to be more conscientious, goal-oriented and successful. Their manageable anxiety and mild neurotic traits motivate them to take action and get the job done. They may still fret, but they are able to channel their concerns into constructive outcomes.

Neuroticism has also been linked to creative genius. Of course, overthinking things can make even the most imaginative people miserable, but their ruminations can sometimes generate creative ideas that solve problems in innovative ways.

Although neuroticism can sometimes be a crippling trait, there is compelling scientific evidence that a variety of strategies can reduce neurotic thinking and behavior and make life more enjoyable and fulfilling. In our new book, SNAP! Change Your Personality in 30 Days, we discuss how self-help strategies, working with a therapist, or the combination of the two can effectively reduce levels of neuroticism and bolster emotional stability. It is possible to gain a better understanding of what drives neurotic symptoms and acquire the tools that can change this personality trait in just one month – it doesn’t necessarily take years of psychotherapy, self-exploration or re-hashing every single bad thing that’s ever happened to you. Anyone who is committed to change can take the opportunity to achieve their goals, become less neurotic, and improve their life.
