    Default Do you sometimes overthink things, making them into problems?

    Do you sometimes over think certain things, and unintentionally make them into much larger problems because of your overthinking?

    If by sometimes you mean always, and by things you mean everything, then yes, yes I do.

    Yes. If there are no problems my life gets boring, so yes, I usually and mostly unconsciously take even the simplest conversation and overthink that into a problem.
    And when there is a problem (even if it is a fake one) I start making up hypothesis and what ifs and I end up sabotaging my every relationship.

    Yeah, my days eventually starts feeling kind of 'boring' when there are 'no' problems - so I tend to bring problems onto myself by thinking them, some times - particularly when it's thinking about something I really want, or someone I really want to be with... and then, the steering wheel goes back to normal, and I do it again.

    ... But that can be overcome with with prayer - in my instance, and (generally) keeping yourself busy.

    Only damn problem with that is, imagine I actually do get what I want, or get to be with someone I like to be with... that moment of joy always seems to make me feel a little tardy, too.

    HAHA, gotta LOVE the INTP answer. Way to go.

    Sure, happens sometimes. Mostly because of doubts. If you have enough trust in something or somebody, it doesn't happen too much though. At least so I noticed.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    Overthink does not make things into problems.
    The problem precedes overthink.
    The thing precedes the problem.

    Yes. Anyone who knows me pretty much defines me by this quality.

    Only when I'm dealing with a problem in an area of life I'm not very confident in. Ex. I can easily overthink relationships, but rarely work-related problems.
