— Ivy Wong

 

Nobody likes to be caught unawares. It’s good to be well prepared in any situation.

— Vanessa Low

 

Generally yes! It’s because they want to safeguard their interests. They tend to think of the worst scenario, then set in place measures to handle whatever might go wrong.

— Wu Yan Ping

 

Not exactly. I see it as Singaporeans using their intellect when it comes to making important decisions.

— Robert Low

 

Yes, it’s part of our upbringing. In school, we’re taught not to be hasty and to think through things carefully.

— Amadeus Tan

 

Where does overanalysis lead you to? You may just miss the point altogether.
