Persons With These Characteristics Are Prone to Major Health Issues

There are several character traits that are common in people who are prone to suffer from major health issues such as strokes, heart attacks, and cancer. Studies have shown that solitary, introverted, and depressed people are 40 percent more likely to suffer from major health issues than those who are extroverted.

Negative moods not only interfere with your immune system, but they also have a negative impact on the quality of your life. It is hard to change your character, so you may suffer from a potentially life-threatening disease without knowing it. Here are four characteristics that you should try to avoid to safeguard your health.

Nervous and anxious

Being nervous and becoming anxious quickly can lower the vitality of your immune cells. A person who is nervous and anxious on a long-term basis will suffer from low immune function and may fall victim to a major ailment.

Introverted and solitary

Some people are solitary and reluctant to communicate with people. They are not willing to reveal themselves and try to hide their true feelings. Lacking communication with others and missing the shared identification from others might bring damage to their immunity.

Forbearing and depressed

Some people do not show any feelings when they come across difficulties. They bottle up whatever they have to face. Although this appears to make a person seem tough, these people can easily suffer from a major disease. Psychologists have found that in this type of person, the vitality of their lymph cells, the most important immune cells in the human body, was lower than that in other people.  Too much forbearance and depression may make you appear to be a gentle person, but they are not good for your health.

Aggressive and competitive

You should also refrain from being too aggressive. Those who are aggressive and competitively try to win at everything they do are energetic and highly demanding in their lives and professions. People with this kind of character get angry easily. They pursue excellence and ask themselves as well as others to do their best. Once this is not achieved, they might become anxious and cranky. People with this kind of character are susceptible to cardiovascular diseases, and their risk of contracting hypertension is high compared with other people.
