Abstract [sv]

Personer med neurotiska personlighetsdrag upplever en högre grad av otrygghet än andra grupper. Men få studier fördjupar sig i hur deras otrygghet tar form. Därför skapades syftet att undersöka hur unga vuxna med neurotiska personlighetsdrag upplever otrygghet i befolkad stadsmiljö på kvällstid. För att besvara syftet användes en kvalitativ ansats med semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex personer som behandlats för neurotiska personlighetsdrag. I den latenta innehållsanalysen framkom fyra kategorier: Folkmassa, Typer av människor, Adderande otrygghetsfaktorer och Beteende. Resultatet visar att det finns olika faktorer i en folkmassa som påverkar den upplevda otryggheten, och att en stor faktor är hur mycket kontroll personen upplever i situationen. Deltagarna hade olika invanda beteenden och tankar som speglades genom att de inte litade på att människor vill deras bästa, de hade en redan inneboende otrygghet och scannade ofta av hela miljön efter hot. Tidigare forskning, begreppet neurotiska personlighetsdrag och the social psychology model användes för att förklara resultaten. Men mer forskning behövs för att få djupare förståelse om deras otrygghet och hur man ska minska den på ett effektivt sätt.

Abstract [en]

People with neurotic personality traits experience a higher level of unsafety than other groups. But few studies examine how their unsafety takes shape. That is why this study aims to examine how people with neurotic personality traits experience unsafety in a crowded city environment in the evenings. To answer the purpose of the study a qualitative method was used through semi-structured interviews with six people that had been treated for neurotic personality traits. Through the latent content analysis four categories emerged: Crowd, Types of people, Added unsafety factors and Behaviour. The results show that there are different factors in a crowd that effects feelings of unsafety, and one big factor is how much control the person perceives to have in a situation. The participants had different habitual behaviours and thoughts that reflects in the fact that they did not trust people to want their best, they already had an inherent unsafety and often scanned their entire environment for threats. Previous research, the concept of neurotic personality traits and the social psychology model were used to explain the results. But more research is needed to gain a deeper understanding about their unsafety and how do decrease it in the most effective way.
