Overthinking is a common habit. Those of us who know the feeling of thinking about one thing again and again and again, will find themselves in this article.

 1. They have high expectations.

They’re hard on themselves because they always want to put their best foot forward. They expect a lot of others also because they give so much of themselves.  Overthinking leads to higher standards and higher expectations.

2. They’re great conversationalists.

Everything they’ve ever attempted, they’ve thought through. This means that they researched every possible way to do something then settled on the best approach. They usually have tidbits of information on almost everything. These guys have thought of everything!


3. They are patient.

They have the stamina to consider all options before committing to a decision. As long as they can feed their need to overthink, they are willing to take the time to do more, give more, over-extend themselves, all for the sake of analyzing the situation completely. Overthinkers are less likely to make quick, irrational decisions.


4. They’re multi-taskers.

They cover all the bases, they would do the work of four people to make sure something is done correctly. They tend to do a little more than what is expected of them and are happy to do so. They don’t even realize how much extra effort they exert.


5. They are multi-passionate.

Overthinkers are open to trying new things, eating new foods, attempting new approaches. They’re open to change. They leave no stone un-turned. To overthink, is to get tired of one way of thinking and to continue to think of the same thing with a new angle. Overthinking breeds change which then breeds creativity and innovation.  


6. They are self-aware and socially-aware.

They follow etiquette rules and have couth.  They rarely put their foot in their mouth because they understand the basic rules of social engagement. If they don’t know the rules, they find them. They are too afraid to act incorrectly that they avoid it by thinking of all scenarios and being prepared in all situations.


7. Their brains can handle a lot of information.

They’re driven a little further than others who would not have the stamina to think of so many things. They can handle higher highs and lower lows than most.


8. They have no regrets.

They put all they have into everything so that they don’t ever have to wish they had tried harder, said something smarter, gave more, or done better. They’ve thought out all outcomes. They are prepared for all situations. They’ve over thought, thus seeking new knowledge to make better decisions.
