If a person is selfish then he has lesser chances to develop depression as compared to the person who is selfless. People who are polite, simple, selfless, kind and generous have higher chances of developing depression as compared to those who are selfish and reverse to the before mentioned characters. However, this is not true in case of anxiety. People who are selfish have higher chances of developing anxiety as compared to people who are selfless.
For PTSD, it is essential to screen a person and know the chances of developing PTSD. Thus, if a soldier is leaving for war then he should be screened in order to know what the percentage chances of him to develop PTSD are. If the person has lived in “different” countries or “adjusted” in different cultures or “adjusted” with people of “different” nature or “adjusted” in different environmental conditions then he has lesser chances of developing PTSD. It can thus be noted that the words “different” and “adjustment” are the two most important terms for knowing the percentage chances of an individual to develop PTSD. The psychiatrists or psychologists who understand these two terminologies can not only find the chances of an individual to develop PTSD in a “different” environment where “adjustment” is essential but can also make a person immune to traumas of specific types. This can also help in finding the curative remedy of PTSD.
