ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a cross-sectional study of personality in people with essential tremor compared with a control group. Essential tremor is the commonest movement disorder in clinical practice and has hitherto been considered a pure motor disorder without evidence of neuronal degeneration or widespread changes in the central nervous system. This careful study showed higher scores in the essential tremor group on the transdimensional personality questionnaire in the domain of harm avoidance, implying a personality with increased levels of pessimism, fearfulness, shyness, and anxiety and easy fatigability.
