Description - Anxiety and Cognition by Michael W. Eysenck
This text argues that there are three major approaches to anxiety: anxiety as an emotional state; trait anxiety as a dimension of personality; and anxiety as a set of disorders. It then attempts to produce a unified theory of anxiety which integrates these major approaches. According to this unified theory, there are four sources of information which influence the level of experienced anxiety: experimental stimulation; internal physiological activity; internal cognitions, such as worries; and one's own behaviour. More specifically, it is assumed that individual differences in experienced anxiety between those high and low in trait anxiety depend largely on cognitive biases.
