What Causes Feelings Of Insecurity?

Feelings of insecurity can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose feelings of insecurity, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "feelings of insecurity" as a symptom.  For example, anxiety.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
very angry/hostile disposition
being anxious/nervous
frequent bizarre dreams
jumpiness
regular nightmares
poor ability to relax
chest tightness
often/always feeling unusually cold
regular night terrors
discontinued antianxiety drug use
difficulty falling asleep
minor nail biting
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of feelings of insecurity.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Emotional Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about feelings of insecurity:
Approximately how often do you have feelings of insecurity? Examples include worrying about what people think of you, wondering if you are working hard enough, wondering if you are doing something wrong.
Possible responses:
→ Never / don't know
→ Rarely - under once per month, nothing serious
→ Occasionally - a few times a month
→ Regularly, in certain situations
→ I am (almost) always insecure or self-conscious
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate slight feelings of insecurity, feelings of insecurity or frequent feelings of insecurity, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Anxiety.
