    We will be speaking or watching a video or something and she over analyses situations. She picked up psychology this year and now she just throws in these terms and drifts off talking about why someone does something and how it links in with whatever, but she does it constantly and I find it so frustrating. I zone out to be honest when she speak about it.

    Why is that?

    She told me her parents can't stand it either.

    Probably because I don't know about it myself so it's all foreign to me.

    Omg I've been doing this ever since I took psychology

    It becomes an instinct to do it subconsciously. Obviously I don't talk about it all the time but she just might be more expressive in that sense. she's being observant and applying her knowledge. It's good for her in the long term if she's considering a career in psychology.

    Maybe you should try joining in the conversations and take something from it. If you don't understand a concept ask her to explain. Essentially she's feeding you ideas and knowledge for free.


    Ofcourse if it really isn't your thing just side track the conversation or let her know that she is rambling and to keep the analysing in her head lol.

    My sister does this but she does it in a joking way so it’s alright, but her friend goes overboard and it annoys me so much!!

    I did psychology for 2 weeks, glad i didn’t go on longer.

    I understand she has a passion, but I have a passion for Biology but I know it would be frustrating to constantly speak about it, so I don't. I mean fair enough good for her I've told her before but she still does it😂

    She's just trying to sound smart to distract you from the fact that she isn't doing a real degree.
