psychological underpinnings of anxiety?

  1. So any psychology inclined blades here wonder about the underpinnings of anxiety? Like what causes some people to be anxious and others to not be?

    Anxiety tends to be more a manifestation of management behaviours than an effect of psychological issues. Cognitive behavioural therapy is very good at intervening the propagating behaviours, without the individual needing costly and invasive pscyhoanalysis.

    Anxiety disorders are very interesting to me. They have common roots but express themselves in dramatically different ways. Some of these expressions are very isolating and self-propagating; like object hording or nail biting.
