I would never have described myself as such until someone at work did, and it was a total lightbulb moment. now it means I can explain to others why I’m so hyper neurotic when it comes to planning things (…like Russian visas) and doing things I’ve never done before. My dad and my nan are/were the world’s biggest worriers so it’s almost certainly a nurture thing.
Are you a catastrophiser? (Public)
- Chronic catastrophiser, constantly working overtime to make contingency plans and getting in a panic about things going wrong
- Sometimes, when it’s reasonable to fret about something going wrong and make a back-up plan
- Every so often I’ll catastrophise about something but generally I’m chill
- I am cool as a cucumber, life’s too short to worry maaaan
