    I over think every decision I make lol!!

    Including which reference to use for which thingy in my essays at uni... lol

    and yes it annoys the fuck out of me when someone else says stop thinking... Why? cos you know it's my life and if I mess up it's my problem while they drive from the backseat without responsibility!

    though I do over think...

    For a feeler who is crazy about how important it is to include emotions in one decision making process, I'm useless at doing just that lol!

    I've been told I think too much and that I "need to stop". I usually joke (although its not very funny :P) that if they thought about it more, it's quite beneficial to think a lot. They usually begin walking away partway through the "...thought about it..." part of that sentance

    well the worst combination would be an NP vs SJ...

    They really do just want a decision then and there, after all it should be simple right?

    One of my pet peeves is someone saying "you think too much." It makes me want to hit them with a brick.

    i get that comment all the time, and variations: "you think too much." "you overthink".

    sometimes i'd be telling myself the same: "stop thinking! STOP!"

    INTP fault?
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    Anyone else find this request/command, similar to "Stop breathing!"?
    No, it's worse. In order to follow the request you have to start by thinking. So actually, it's a paradox. A good one, too. Buddhism says the cause of suffering is desire (for change). How does one uproot desire without creating another desire to uproot the primary desire?

    ...fun stuff.

    When I'm thinking I look more like Michael Corleone plotting (without the good looks) so people tend to skip "Stop thinking!" and go straight to "This guy is f*cking nuts". The same goes for when I'm done thinking and begin telling people my plans
    But sir, your opinion is wrong.
