Example:. Someone just slammed the phone on you. You tell your s. o. they tell you that you are over reacting and that it could have been that customer service representatives first day at work. They go on a long story of how their first day of work was like.
I. e. Over thinking:. You think he is not empathetic and doesn't care about your feelings, you think he is taking the others side and sympathize with them and he doesn't even know them, and then you start to think about the millions of other times he has done this.
I. e. under thinking, yah he is right, you need to be more understanding of the customer service representative and it's your fault that they hung up on you and lied to you that they were going to build your fence in two weeks and three months later it's not built. Good bye $2,000. You lost it because you were evil and evil always treating the sales representative wrong so you deserve rude behavior. You need to get a grip on your anger problem and take responsibility for your bad misfortune. Everything is your fault.
Not thinking, this would be where you say I will pretend I didn't hear you say anything, and I will solve this problem by keep calling them to do what they promised

Why would your s o tell yo you are over reacting bc you mentioned what happened. they sound like an ass, and i dont think recognizing that is over thinking. its not the best example., bc peoples behavior can sometimes be inappropriate and we reevaluate things as a result. also telling someone they are over reacting is a way to put them in a defensive position. this can lead to negative thoughts. you're leaving out the dynamic here. it isn't just one person thinking, there's a reaction. the SO is passive aggressive.0
