“First of all, these criticisms overlook the fact that what makes people anxious and whether or not they are able to attain unperturbedness (by suspending judgment) seem to depend upon personal psychological traits.”

I think I've already posted this sentence some time ago, but, as it gave rise to further discussion, I think it's ok to post it here.

As I've got two subjects, it is clear that I must use "seem". However, the fact that I use "the fact that" makes it sound kind of awkward. Hence I've thought I could perhaps say sth. like this to make things clearer:

“First of all, these criticisms overlook that (a) what makes people anxious and (b) whether or not they are able to attain unperturbedness (by suspending judgment) seem to depend upon personal psychological traits.”

What do you think?

Well, it's ok with the "the fact" included. And yes, it's better with "one".
