Most of the traits that define our psychology are influenced by many different factors, including genetics, lifestyle and environment.

What is Emotional Stability?
Emotional stability is the trait that determines the way you react to stimuli, especially those that generate anxiety, anger or sadness.
you react to stimuli, especially those that generate anxiety, anger or sadness. In fact, one of the main traits that characterize Emotional Stability is sensitivity, that is, the ease with which you respond or not to emotions such as discomfort or panic. On the other hand, this trait also encompasses the time it takes you to recover emotionally from the aforementioned anxiety.
Thus, your emotional stability depends on the predisposition of your DNA and other factors such as environment and lived experiences. For this reason, although genetically you have a greater or lesser tendency to be emotionally stable, it is not uncommon for this to vary depending on the experiences you have had and the stress you are going through at any given time.
What does Emotional Stability say about me?
Genetically you define yourself as a confident person and capable of managing your emotions in a positive way. This helps you to remain calm in difficult situations, both professionally and personally, and not get carried away by negative feelings. Thus, people with a high score in emotional stability tend to be calmer and less likely to feel tense or nervous.
Levels of emotional stability – neuroticism are relatively stable from adolescence/early adulthood onwards and, in general, this trait is influenced by environmental factors that occur in childhood. However, certain factors in your life today may tip the balance toward one pole or the other.
In general terms, emotional stability increases with age.
Exposure to very stressful or negative events, such as having experienced a traffic accident, natural disaster or having suffered some type of abuse in childhood, decreases the predisposition to emotional stability.
Growing up in an environment in which safe and healthy relationships with parents, family members and peers predominate enhances the predisposition to emotional stability.
Perceived health is a factor that can influence levels of emotional stability; in particular, suffering from some type of chronic pain is associated with scores on this trait closer to the neuroticism pole.

In 2015 Perkins proposed the “daydreaming” hypothesis. According to this model, people with lower levels of emotional stability and higher levels of neuroticism are more creative and have a more vivid imagination. Historical figures such as Van Gogh, Darwin or Virginia Wolf had innately high tendencies towards neuroticism.
