    Default Big Five - neuroticism

    Let's play. I'll call this MBTI Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope Thread

    N stands for the amount of neuroticism one has.

    = + + = ENTP

    Oh crap, that reminds me...I knew I forgot something this morning - my fallout suit. Oh well. Maybe I'll grow an abnormally large wanker. Then I could scare and amaze the ladies at the same time. That's definitely a plus.

    huh?

    also, neuroticism (as measured in Big Five) has the lowest correlation to any mbti trait. it's unrelated to S-N measures.

    I don't even see how neuroticism could be part of personality. You get more healthy and your neuroticism goes down, duh...

    this ^^^ is true, but it's a personality 'characteristic.'

    define 'healthier.' it's readily possible to be a so called "high performing" individual and have low levels of emotional stability (aka be neurotic).

    John McEnroe comes to mind.
    YouTube - John McEnroe is madddddd

    Plenty of high strung people who do well at a lot of things - but they tend to waste a lot of time screaming about BS, i guess.

    i suppose as a total, balanced person, to be 'healthy', then yes, you have to be less neurotic.




    this was circuitous.

    Yeah, I guess it is possible to see such a person healthy. There is no reason that my "healthy" means anything definite. But, yep, I was going for the "balanced". Anyhow, what I was thinking is that the way I see personality is that it is not something you can change. If this is true, then neuroticism is not a personality trait. The other four seem to be closer to fixed traits. I'm not sure about "openness", though...

    oh really?

    a person can learn how to be more conscientious ("the trait of being painstaking and careful") by simply thinking things through before acting, and using organization tools. eventually this becomes habitual - and then they are "more conscientious."

    I think everything can be changed - within broad limits. takes a lot of practice though.


    as an interesting aside:
    Conscientiousness is related to impulse control, but it should not be confused with the problems of impulse control found in neuroticism. People high on neurotic impulsiveness find it difficult to resist temptation or delay gratification. Individuals who are low on conscientious self-discipline are unable to motivate themselves to perform a task that they would like to accomplish. These are conceptually similar but empirically distinct.
