He spent many hours doing the research and won’t let it go even though he exhausted his source of information. He was often late for handing in his assignments.
He tried many management techniques but could not help researching compulsively. As a result, he lost many hours of sleep, was frustrated with his imperfect work, fearful of failure, and had doubts about his ability.
In addition, he has a low tolerance for stress and gets overwhelmed easily. He once felt so gloomy that he began to question the value of being alive.
