2. A Perfectionist
High-functioning anxiety may drive you to do things flawlessly. One reason for this could be your worry about being called out for half-hearted output.
People around you may describe you as driven and determined to do things your way.
3. Sleep Less
Consistent with most anxiety disorders, high-functioning anxiety can make you lose sleep.
You might find yourself thinking back on the things you might have done wrong or worrying about future tasks you haven’t done yet.
4. Say Yes to Requests More Often
Do you struggle with saying no to people’s requests? Or do you find yourself taking tasks even when you can no longer handle them?
If so, then you have one of the characteristics of high-functioning anxiety. Not being able to say no is usually connected to a person’s need to please people.
