‘Healthy Neuroticism’ Lowers Risk of Chronic Disease


Neurotic people, such as anxious worriers, depressives, and those who have a temper, might not be very healthy, especially when compared to people who demonstrate openness, extroversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness.

Inflammation is linked to disease, stroke, asthma, diabetes, arthritis, and some cancers.
