For the most part, “neurotics” are an anxious lot. It’s their fears and apprehensions that hang neurotics up and cause them problems. But there are folks in this world who have too little apprehension for their own good (or for the good of others who happen to be in a relationship with them). A little anxiety or apprehension would go a long way toward inhibiting disturbed characters from doing that hurtful thing to their co-worker or saying that hateful thing to their partner. But alas, these folks are very different from neurotics in many ways, especially on the dimension of anxiety. I talk about this and other aspects of personality in an upcoming series of webinars. Below is a link to a brief video clip from that series, titled: Anxiety, Neurosis, and Character Disturbance.
