You’re Welcome!

From FuturePundit yesterday, this story: Neurotic Men Improve Health of Women. (And no, the reverse doesn’t seem to be true, unfortunately for dudes out there.) You’re welcome, my wife! I can feel you getting more and more healthy every day.

From the linked article:

Conscientiousness is a good thing in a mate, researchers report, not just because it’s easier to live with someone who washes the dishes without being asked, but also because having a conscientious partner may actually be good for one’s health. Their study, of adults over age 50, also found that women, but not men, get an added health benefit when paired with someone who is conscientious and neurotic.

How about making the bed without being asked? Is that a sign of a neurotic man? And how does neurotic map to obsessive-compulsive?
