Individuals whose personality is high in neuroticism “intensify their efforts” for coping with anxiety. They work tirelessly to minimize all chances of failing at their tasks. The more anxious they get, the harder they work as they believe that it will increase their chances of succeeding, thereby preventing unfavorable outcomes.

(Temi Bidjerano; David Yun Dai, 2007)
