Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Anxiety is a condition which is hard to define even though everyone has experienced it to some degree and at one time or another. One problem involved in defining it is to determine whether it is a long- or short-term characteristic. This is an important point because if anxiety is a long-term personality trait we need to find out which persons are anxious, how they got that way, and how they are coping with the condition. If, on the other hand, anxiety is merely a temporary state, we need to determine during which situations the anxiety is aroused and how the persons cope with the anxiety whenever it arises.·
