    The Overactive Brain Of An Analytic Analytic ...

    I read with great interest and relief the story about a lady with an overactive brain who analyses everything upside down and backward. So I’m NOT alone! In brief here are some of my own characteristics: My mind is constantly changing from one topic to another. It is as...

    I accidentally watched the passion of the Christ

    and the only thing I learned was what mankind is passionate about; violence and ignorance. It is with great labor and gruesomeness that man has created Gods in his image. What a sad world we weave. What a lost lamb will learn. What a helpless species we blind. Forever and ever...

    I often over analyze how something is made,

    by trying to imagine what the molecules look like, and because I have little knowledge of all this I get really confused and start freaking out a little. I also over analyze noise. If I hear something strange I will listen to it trying to determine so many facts about it, until...

    I constantly over-analyze my own self worth.

    Am I pretty enough, smart enough, creative enough? It's like a disease (actually, it probably is a disease). The only one who keeps me grounded in the fact that I AM good enough is my man. He constantly reassures me that I'm a wonderful human being, and I'm thankful for that...

    When Have I Not?

    I want my story to grab attention. I highly observe into everyone and everything around me. I have been told that my intelligence is far beyond my years and I speak like a 40-year-old even though I am just adolescent. With age comes only experience, but for some who TRY, also...

    Broken Record

    Wow, I totally replay conversations I've had in my head over and over like a broken record. I don't know why. It drives me crazy. I can't go back and change what was said. I do this with even mundane conversations. I just might be crazy.

    Thinking, Always Thinking...

    It never stops.  I analyze my analyses!  Part of it is I have BPD and my mind moves very fast.  This also results in chronic insomnia - my body can be totally exhausted, but my brain is still going at olympic speed.  Hours go by.  And, yes, some of the...

    Mr Analyzer?...present!

    Boy do I analyze! Where did it start? I asked many questions and still do! Part of knowing a lot and being a smart person, is through hands on scenarios and a lot of questions... I know my type of personality is very annoying at certain times... But I'm always the guy...

    Is it possible to spend every hour on E.

    P? This person just can't be real, they are literally on this thing all day. I swear it's a fake account that generates a certain amount of questions per hour. Maybe I just over analyze everything.....

    I'm confident in what I

    now know, which is still the same as what I first knew: nothing. But you know nothing some may argue. Yes. But it is that truth instead of someone else's lie that gives me comfort and piece of mind.

    Sometimes I ponder, after indulging in a

    branded bag, some expensive lotion and makeup. I can't bring my bag with me when I die, n my pampered skin turns to dust.. So what's the point of all this? Guess we will never know!

    expectations of me especially when they voice such high opinions of me and/or my abilities.

    Try To Make Sense Of It All

    I look at people and the world attempting to understand them along with all that occurs. I also feel that it is done too much or simply I should stop. I minored in philosophy in college and that is why it is now part of my nature. I will say that it all has indeed given me a...

    Always Watching

    Im a libra so we are pretty good analyzers wondering what is going on in that person head or observing behaviors we usually don't make it obvious but we are always looking or wating to see what is going on being aware of out surroundings is a better way of saying this

    I Drive Myself Crazy

    I recently started seeing someone. I don't get to talk to him as often as I'd like and I find myself going over things he says to me. Like for instance when he first called me dear, I spent the better part of the day trying to figure out if he was mocking me. However now that...

    A Case Of Overactive Brain

    I overanalyze. I will now doubtless overanalyze the fact that I overanalyze.......sigh. I can't seem to shut my brain off sometimes.  Or divert it.  Or just leave things alone. Most of the time it is self analysis.  A hypercritical sense of "what am I doing wrong...

    I Do Analyze Everything

    When I chat with someone and there is a longer pause, I'm asking myself "does this person not want to talk to me anymore?". "Is he/she busy with something else and thus not interested in me? When I talk to someone in person I'll analyze how long they keep eye contact and how it...

    I hate that media pushes unconnected relationships. It's painful for everyone involved when you expect sex to just be sex because it's so much more.
