A word from the times of Sigmund Freud, It no longer used in modern Behavioral Science. So if you look this up in a real dictionary it will say "see Neurosis" which will then say "see Anxiety disorder"

---Neurotic, is a label to describe someone suffering from Neurosis, Neurosis is the term used for the "distress" caused by mental illness.

---I have found two sentence that give good understanding to the word.

1. Neurotic: poor ability to adapt to one's environment, an inability to change one's life patterns, and the inability to develop a richer, more complex, more satisfying personality

2. Neurotic: , On a scale of 1-10; Where 10 is the healthy optimistic well adjusted person with good coping skills to stress and change, that came from a well adjusted family, with no hang up or inhibitions that determent the quality of his life. So a score of 1, would be Neurotic.

3. Neurotic: A negative personality trait that make one prone to anxiety depression, that appears genetic

***4. Neurotic: A inharmonious balance between the ego, id, and super ego, Which affect the thoughts and behaviors produced from the ego. (Sigmund's definition)

5. Neurotic: Thoughts and behaviors deviant from social norms, and usually maladaptive.

---Not to be confused with Psychotic, which means to be out of touch with reality, Neurotic means to suck at dealing with reality.
