Overanalyzing = Overcomplicating

I tend to overcomplicate things; many people do.  I can no longer recall how many times I’ve heard friends say they wish they wouldn’t over analyze their lives because it just makes the situation worse. 

Why do some of us over analyze and others don't?  This link from Ehow may provide some insight.

Are you an overanalyzer?

  1. Great article over at Ehow. Thanks for sharing TV. I tend to overcomplicate things too. I'd like to think as I grow older, I analyze less - at least less than I did when I was a teenager analyzing whether a boy liked me! lol

  2. Oh, yeah. Over analyzer and over thinker here. Our biggest strength is our biggest weakness.

  3. my best friend and I always used to say we picked things apart until they were dead! If you give me enough time to analyze things, I'll change my mind probably 15 times before making the final decision...Ha! Sad but true :(

  6. I don't think I know a single person who doesn't struggle with overanalyzing things at one point or another but, def. some seem to have it under control more than others. lol. I think my over analyzing tends to be worse depending on my moods...probably even hormonally related. lol. I think I will have to check that article out!

  7. Me? Overanaylyzer? Nah....I don't think so...Or am I? Wait? What do you mean exactly by 'overanalyzer' anyway, cos you can look at it from different angles. This idea is too multifaceted to be answered simplistically so let me think, think, think about this.....(HAHAHAHHAHA ;-)))

  8. Hmmm... I can be. The thing is, I never think I'm overanalyzing at the time. I'm just stating facts and calling my husband out (or whomever). I realize I overdo stuff after the fact (but usually still think I'm right.) I should be sent to my room or something.

  9. I think we all do this at times if not more often than not. I do this far too often. It is something to work on. I hope you are doing great! Have a good weekend!

  10. Oh, man...this is me. I over analyze and I over think all the time...although, I'm getting better at it. I think it was at it's worse when I was in that dating stage of life and was always trying to guess his every move, thought, or word. I'm glad those days are over!
