If a peaceful weekend in the country sounds like your worst nightmare, you're not alone. A recent study found that neurotic people find the hustle and bustle of a city less stressful than a getaway in nature. In other words, your personality determines whether something is calming for you.

Researchers evaluated the personality trait by asking people questions about how much they worry and how easily they get annoyed. It's also worth noting that the study was conducted in a lab, so participants didn't physically go the environments. But if you feel stressed out in laid-back situations, this might be why.
