No Evidence of "healthy neuroticism" in the Hawaii Personality and Health Cohort.

Summary of "No Evidence of "healthy neuroticism" in the Hawaii Personality and Health Cohort."

Heterogeneity in the effects of trait neuroticism on mortality has inspired recent theories of "healthy neuroticism," or the possibility that neuroticism can lead people down either healthy or unhealthy behavioral pathways. The logical extension of this theory is that some construct-perhaps another trait, financial resource, or health-relevant situation-changes the relationship between neuroticism and health. The other possibility is that different components of neuroticism lead to different health behaviors and therefore different outcomes.
