Clinical anxiety or neurosis is characterized by following disorders:

Phobias represent irrational, pathological fear of differentoccurrences. For example the fear of flying, the fear of spiders or arachnophobia, fear of open spaces agoraphobia, fear of closed spaces claustrophobia, and others.

Compulsive neurosis is often shown by the patient who is repeating senseless actions.
