View Full Version : Do you over-analyse simple things?

April 7th, 2010, 6:35 AM
I mean, every day things such as what toothpaste to use, what shirt to put on today, why people are talking to you, etc. So do you do it?

I realised that I analyse people's actions a lot.

I don't over-analyze things, I mean I do plan what I want to wear, but some days I just pick of clean cloths that have been on the floor for save keeping..

But I as well as you do sometimes wonder why the heck people are talking to me, not always only when I sense that person is gonna ask me for something, I'm really good at that.. xD

Sometimes I do over analyze simple things. Now on occasions, over analysis isn't a bad thing, but sometimes it is.

INTP's and the like tend to do that kind of thing.

Yeah, I do over-analyze things and then I start staring off into space at which point someone asks me what I'm doing then I snap out of my reverie.

I over-analyze in mathematics; I think that the solution just has to be complicated to achieve, when really, it's rather simple and follows a pattern.

Not reeeeally.

I do sometimes, though. I always have to pick the right shirt for the right day, I guess.
But not about tooth paste or friends. I just go with the flow.

yep. i gotta stop doing that too. i make things way too complicate sometimes, and then i end up stressing myself out in the process.

huh. I remember a question in maths which asked you to prove something-or-rather and in the first part of the question, you got the required proof and all you needed was one line.

I spent ages figuring out a really really long method of doing it. =|

No, I'm fairly carefree in that I don't dwell on things very long. If I can't come up with an answer or a solution quick enough, I'll set the idea aside and concentrate on something else for a while or just forget about it entirely. People often come to me and start asking if I noticed that ____ seemed to have ulterior motives in something they did and usually all I can do is stare blankly and tell them that it seemed simple and clear-cut to me, haha.

Though while it makes me carefree to some extent, also makes me somewhat careless.

I spend ten minutes deciding which side I'm going to eat a chip on. Enough said.

This is what we call brilliance in a post. XD

I over analyze everything. The slightest look a friend gives me, the way the guy in Mc Donalds gives me fries, the sport of fishing. Everything has to be thought of. XD

Everything, from my toothbrush, to every grain of rice on my plate, to the cheese on the pizza, to the shoes that guy/girl is wearing, to the girl herself, to my hair. Everything. xD
