Neuroticism – High
You scored high in neuroticism. Others may describe you as emotionally reactive – emotionally, you experience extreme highs and extreme lows.
You also can be very anxious at times, and others may describe you as somewhat pessimistic. You tend to worry about how you are perceived by others. Your thoughts often keep you awake at night.
Although being neurotic may sound like a bad thing, research has found that those who score high in this trait are typically very successful. Researcher Daniel Nettle recently found that people who score high in neuroticism are extremely hard-working, no matter what. You tend to think through future challenges that may arise, a trait that helps you handle challenges that arise. Because you worry about what others think of you, you are able to do your best building relationships with your supervisor and coworkers.
Neuroticism can be a trait that helps you excel at work. Neurotic individuals typically do well in careers as entrepreneurs, and in careers that they are truly passionate about.
