    No, I know that's the case for you. I'm trying to give you the perceiver p.o.v.. I know what you need to do and I have no problem with it. Also, I know you are trying to accommodate for your gf and I commend you for it.

    Yeah, I'll speak in extremes, I suppose, but I don't necessarily mean it or feel it all that strongly. A lot of times I'm just playing devil's advocate, just a way of getting another point of view across.

    I guess I'm just wondering, literally, what you mean by over prepare. I'm just curious. Like how detailed do you get in your preparations?

    Trying to figure stuff out at the last second is only fun when you have enough background knowledge stored in your brain that the stress factor makes a million ideas that you already had immediately apparent and available to you. In other words, your experience flows forth like a bursting dam of knowledge that has been stored away for the proper moment.

    However, if you are trying to figure out things at the last second and have no beeping clue what you're doing, that's no fun at all.

    In this context I hear over preparing meaning to prepare well enough to make you comfortable with the situation, then go with what comes your way. Don't do exclisively either. Do both.

    This is Truth- I become the greatest in the 11th hour.

    In the beginning I start slowly, getting a sense of what kind of time it's going to take. Once I'm comfortable with that, then I'll kind of go at it a little slower, picking up the pace in the last minute. But if I have no background info on it, going at it cold, I'm in trouble.

    This sounds a whole lot like me.
