Maladaptive Daydreaming: When You Make Up Scenarios in Your Head of People You Just Met

Maladaptive Daydreaming: When You Make Up Scenarios in Your Head of People You Just Met maladaptive daydreaming: when you make up scenarios in your head of people you just met

Today, I’ll be addressing the question of why you tend to analyze or create scenarios in your head about people you’ve just met. Sometimes, after meeting someone briefly, you may find myself analyzing and imagining scenarios involving that person.

This is actually a normal experience because our minds naturally analyze new experiences and try to make associations with them. Our minds are like big analyzers, always seeking connections with various aspects of life. However, for a maladaptive daydreamer, this tendency to analyze and create scenarios can become an integral part of daydreaming.

If you’re accustomed to analyzing people you’ve just met, it can become a form of daydreaming. What’s crucial to understand is that you shouldn’t focus solely on why you analyze people but rather on how it affects you. Pay attention to how you feel after these episodes of daydreaming. Do you experience stress, anxiety, self-criticism, or guilt?

These emotional responses are where you can find the answers. Delve into the root causes of what’s driving you to invest so much time in these imaginary worlds. Remember that many people analyze new experiences, but it’s the compulsive and disruptive aspect that needs your attention. Instead of questioning why you analyze people, focus on regaining control of your real life from the grip of excessive daydreaming.
