  If you are the neurotic type, there are few things too small to fret
over.
          如果你属于神经质的类型,那么生活中几乎没有什么事是小到不会让你烦恼的。
          But at least life’s worriers can rest assured that they are on top of the
vacuuming.
          不过,至少生活的担忧者们可以放心,他们使用起吸尘器来一定是行家。
          A study has found the most neurotic people spend up to 41 minutes a day
longer on household chores than those who are emotionally stable. They devote an
hour and 29 minutes to housework, based on a study of more than 1,300
volunteers.
          一项研究发现,相比情绪稳定的人,最神经质的人每天花在家务上的时间要多41分钟。根据对1300多名志愿者的研究,这类人每天会花1小时29分钟来做家务。
          This equates to almost ten-and-a-half hours a week, with women, who –
according to the study – are more likely to be neurotic and do more housework,
exceeding this.
          这相当于每周要花近十个半小时,而研究显示——更容易神经质的女性会做更多家务,超过这个数字。
          Julia Rohrer, of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, led the
research on how different personality types spend their time, which concludes
that neurotic individuals may just be more negatively affected by clutter.
          马克斯·普朗克人类发展研究所的朱莉娅·罗雷尔牵头进行了一项关于不同性格类型的人如何打发时间的研究,研究得出的结论是,神经质的人可能更容易受到杂乱事务的负面影响。
          She said: ‘One possible interpretation is that emotionally instable people
require a more tidy environment to feel good, so they might spend more time
cleaning.
          “一种可能的解释是,情绪不稳定的人需要一个更整洁的环境才能感觉好,所以他们可能会花更多的时间打扫。”她说。
          ‘But in our study, we only looked at time spent on chores, so one could
also imagine that people who are less emotionally stable are less efficient …
and thus need more time to achieve the same results.’
          “不过在我们的研究中,我们只调查了花费在家务上的时间,因此我们也可以想象,情绪不稳定的人效率更低……需要更多时间才能达到同样的成果。”
          Researchers tracked 1,364 individuals to see how their time was spent over
5,456 days. They were put in five personality categories based on a
questionnaire which assessed their level of neuroticism.
          研究人员对1364人进行了跟踪调查,以了解他们在5456天里是如何分配时间的。研究人员根据一项评估他们神经质程度的问卷,将他们分为5个性格类别。
          Those who the study judged to be least emotionally stable, spent 24 extra
minutes a day on housework than people judged to be of average stability.
          研究显示,情绪最不稳定的人比情绪一般稳定的人每天要多做24分钟的家务。
          They spent 41 more minutes a day on chores than the 10 per cent most
stable, which Dr Rohrer – whose research paper, was published in the journal
Collabra – speculated may be because those who struggle with their nerves find
cleaning and tidying soothing.
          而比起情绪最稳定的10%的人,他们每天花在家务上的时间要多41分钟,罗雷尔博士——他的该研究论文发表《Collabra》杂志上——推测,这可能是因为那些神经质的人觉得清洁和整理工作能令人安心。
