Modern health worries (MHW) has been reported to covary, albeit inconsistently, with measures tapping a tendency for emotional lability. We aim to address this inconsistency, in part, by investigating the moderating influence of openness on the previously reported correlation of MHW with neuroticism. One hundred and forty-three participants completed questionnaires assessing neuroticism, openness and MHW. Results show that neuroticism is weakly related to MHW, and this relationship only was found for low openness participants. Future research examining the associations of MHW, emotional lability and well-being may benefit by incorporating openness.
Neuroticism (N) is a personality trait which describes a tendency towards emotional lability (Eysenck & Eysenck, 1975) and to experience negative moods (Costa and McCrae, 1980 and Costa and McCrae, 1987). A body of work shows N to covary with a tendency to report symptoms characteristic of worry, dissatisfaction, and physical and psychological distress that generalize across situations (Clark et al., 1994, Jorgensen and Richards, 1989, Lommen et al., 2010 and Watson and Clark, 1984). Individuals who score high in N are thought to appraise situations in a more threatening manner (Costa and McCrae, 1987, Drabant et al., 2011 and Schneider et al., 2012). In comparison to low N people, high N people have been shown to (a) be more reactive to adverse contexts and anticipation of such events (Hoerger and Quirk, 2010 and Lommen et al., 2010) and (b) score higher on harm-avoidance (Doty, Japee, Ingvar, & Ungerleider, 2013).
