Coping with Over-Analyzation - December 6th 2010, 09:53 PM

Does anyone else have this problem? It's annoying, isn't it? How do you cope with your over-analyzing issues? It makes test-taking unbearable; I always feel that there's more to the obvious. I missed two questions on a recent test because I over-analyzed the obvious. People who didn't study at all got 100%, and I actually studied, and I missed two. Thus, that's saying that it's better not to study than to actually study?

And currently I'm in a Composition class, and it's so basic compared to what we did in high school. We're supposed to write one paragraph essays. The last time I wrote only one paragraph was around third grade. :/ It shouldn't be hard, but it is when you're used to writing analytical essays that have a five page requirement.

Another struggle I've been encountering is: Reading. I used to spend hours and hours reading for pleasure, but now I'm finding it difficult because I find myself wanting to find fault with everything I read. One of my teachers told me to, "Let go." Well, that's easier said than done.

Even on the internet, when reading through forum posts, I find myself critiquing everything in my head. I bite my tongue a lot, because I hate to start problems, really do.

Am I alone?

I'm with you...so frustrating when you do something and end up wasting time thinking too much.
It happens A LOT to me.
