Persoanlly, I feel I sometimes overcompensate for the shortcomings of 'black & white thinking!'


I was extremely black and white -- which in part led to a nervous breakdown. Long story short, I then went into a long phase where I basically stopped caring about anything at all. It worked well as a defense mechanism but eventually I realized that I needed to find a middle ground. I'm better than I used to be but I still need to work on knowing when black and white thinking is OK and when it's not.

Once when we were teenagers, my brother said how annoying I was for always saying "always" or "never".
