When I used to go to school I would always plan out most of my conversations the night BEFORE, and then the next day, I would eventually make the conversations happen the way I planned them to come out. If I felt it was taking a wrong turn, I would manipulate whoever I was talking to, to go in the path that I planned for. I would spend hours a night planning conversations, and I would make many different variables for many different situations and potential outcomes, etc., for example if I was gonna talk to my teacher about something, Id think about what Id say if he got mad, if he got happy, if he didnt understand, and then Id take each outcome and add more to it, so I would end up with like 6 different strings of possibilities per person.

I rarely do it anymore, but has anyone else ever done this? I have done this for about 4 years now, and I can have an almost 100% accuracy rate with people I know really well, and a lower chance for people I know less. I dunno if its a form of OCD or some other disorder.

It could be social anxiety. I used to have the same crap.

on occasion i will plan on conversations, but not nearly to the level you described. it might just be that you are a manipulative person.

I do that. It rarely goes exactly as I'd planned though and I don't think I've spent hours a night thinking of these things, maybe half hour-hour.



I used to spend AT LEAST 3 hours, and they would almost always go as planned. If I felt they were straying from my chosen path, Id say a few things and eventually we'd get back on track. It got to the point that I could argue against teachers for a long time and counter their arguments, I knew what all of my friends were gonna tell me (besides new things that happened or something), and I did it to my parents and everyone I knew.

For lying it usually takes me only a few minutes to piece everything together so it falls just right, usually if I have to call someone and lie on the spot, I spend a few minutes constructing something

i do it when i'm planning to confront a teacher for something significant, like a reference letter.

Nope. I always imagine conversations. But don't make them happen.

its not so much that i "plan" conversations, its more that i replay conversations that i did have and try to think of what i could of have said or done differently to make a more favorable outcome...

Uhh, I wouldn't do that, but I would do something similar. I would plan out some situations. Like something that I want to happen, and kind of act it out. What I would say, what the other person what say, what we would do. I wouldn't expect it to happen, it's just something that I wish would happen.

Did that make sense? Like if I wanted to bump into someone in the hallway, I'd act out in my head how it would happen, what we would say, etc., but I wouldn't expect it to happen or anything.

I'm obviously not a professional, but in my opinion you are just unconfident in yourself for making on the snap decisions or comments, or maybe you are nervous of saying the wrong thing so you plan out all outcomes. I don't think it's any kind of disorder, you are just very careful and "obsessive" about it. Nothing to get worried about or anything.
