The Big Five, Part V: Neuoticism

Neuroticism is the tendency to experience negative emotions, such as anger, anxiety, or depression. It is sometimes called emotional instability.

I'm generally a happy guy, but it's not all peaches and cream.  I get depressed (meaning: quite "down", for days on end) every now and then... less so of late.  I experience anger more often that I would like to admit, but it happens.  I'm not very anxious, though.

On the whole, I would probably rate myself "average" on this scale, but I don't have a whole lot of data to go on, so I would give it a very large margin of error.  I fear I may be selling myself short.
