Neurotic People Overthink And Give Greater Solutions To Difficult Problems: Study
In a new study it is found neurotic people are more creative compared to normal population in terms of problem-solving. Details of it are published in the Trends in Cognitive Sciences journal.
It is said the neurotics are more creative as they think more than required. Lead author of the study, psychologist Adam Perkins, added the neurotics tend to dwell on negative thoughts. They engage themselves in over thinking and so come up with greater solutions.
He said further that highly neurotic person rise up with greater creative potential even though leading a life of depression and anxiety.
He argues such people overthink on matters and this is the reason they lead a life full of anxiety and heightened sensitivity to threat.
The threat sensitive classification in neurotics was earlier proposed in the 70s by British psychologist Jeffrey Gray. However, this is a big question as why threat looked in a magnified way makes them good at finding out solutions of difficult problems.
Co-author of the study, Jonathan Smallwood, has again come up with the theory of neuroticism linked to creativity. In his lecture he described how such people like creativity whose minds wander.
Smallwood demonstrated his theory through brain scans of volunteers to explain how the negative thoughts can highlight more activity.http://www.dailynewsz.com/neurotic-people-overthink-and-give-greater-solutions-to-difficult-problems-study/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Neurotic-People-Overthink-And-Give-Greater-Solutions-To-Difficult-Problems.jpeghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Neurotic-People-Overthink-And-Give-Greater-Solutions-To-Difficult-Problems-300x300.jpegLifestylestudy
