I have been struggling with anxiety for a while now and I have noticed that whenever I am anxious, my brain seems to be in overdrive. I start to overthink things and come up with many different scenarios in my head. This often leads me to being very meticulous and I tend to pay attention to small details.
I was wondering if anyone else with anxiety has experienced this and if it means that people with anxiety tend to be more clever or have a higher intelligence. I am curious to know if there is any link between anxiety and intelligence.
Thank you in advance for your responses!
