6 Ways to Break Free from the Trap of Jealousy | Psychology Today

First, however, let’s see how you compare to the two clients on the key morbid jealousy symptoms.

The five daily target symptoms of morbid jealousy that these clients believed to be their main problem included:

  • feeling jealous;
  • watching and observing a partner (“hypervigilance”);
  • acting out jealousy (“disinhibition”);
  • being anxious; and
  • having low self-esteem.

These are fairly typical feelings associated with high levels of jealousy. Adding to the study’s value, the researchers also involved the partners of the two women, asking each to rate how much their wife was acting jealous and whether they felt their wives were being overly controlling (such as demanding to know where they were at all times).
