Description

The current study is concerned with the effects of anxiety on individual’s behavior and lifestyle in adulthood. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by constant worry and fearfulness for at least six months. Symptoms that individuals with GAD may experience are tiredness or restlessness, irritableness, sleep disturbance, and emotional distress. Generalized anxiety disorder can be comorbid with other mental disorders. The aim of this study is to describe the effects of generalized anxiety upon various aspects within sibling relationships, sleep disturbance, academic achievement, introversion and extroversion, and age- to-employment status. It is hypothesized that anxiety is associated with sleep disturbance. It is expected that participants with generalized anxiety will have higher sleep disturbances than those who do not have anxiety. It is hypothesized that individuals who have had a bad relationship with their sibling/siblings growing up, will have a higher than average level of generalized anxiety in their adulthood. It is expected that individuals who have had a bad relationship with their siblings will have a higher than average level of generalized anxiety in their adulthood. The hypothesis of the study on Anxiety Levels in Introverts and Extroverts is that introverted people have higher levels of general anxiety than extroverts. It is expected that introverts will have high levels of general anxiety than extroverts. It is hypothesized age will have an association with General Anxiety Disorder. It is expected that younger participants will have an increased level of anxiety. Employment will decrease the level of anxiety. It is hypothesized that anxiety will have a negative relationship with students’ school performances.It is expected that scores for the generalized Anxiety Disorder 7 Test will be positively correlated with the Academic Adjustment Scale. The sample will consist of 60 participants, whom are 18 years or older, attending Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU). The current study is beneficial to psychology in that it will use scientific measures to expand research within generalized anxiety symptoms.
