    Default Overthinking

    Do any of you (other) NF's tend to overthink everything?

    I do it all the time it's annoying

    Yes I overthink everything. I even bring back old topics to think a bit more about them, even if they are old and buried in the past.
    I don´t want to start talking about making some kind of desicions, that is just a huge pain in the a#%! :P There are so many pros and cons.....yes it is annoying!
    Still thinking of a good signature......or just one that makes sense

    Absolutely, although I sometimes wonder whether I can attribute that to being an NF or my overactive 6 mind. I'm sure there could be strong cases made for each.

    Yes, I absolutely overthink everything. But I try to be self-deprecating about the trait when talking to friends and co-workers. Everyone knows I do it, so I might as well be the first to beat myself up about the annoying tendency. “Overanalyzing? Me? Really?” Everyone laughs.
    "There is always something to do. There are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. And while I don't expect you to save the world I do think it's not asking too much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those among you who are visionary and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair and disrespect."
