Overgeneralization 👯‍

If we draw conclusions based on just one example, we're over-generalizing. If you bombed a presentation and assume that means you're "bad" at presenting, you're over-generalizing.

Example

No one asked me to dance, so no one ever will.

Similar Distortions

Overgeneralization is really similar to All or Nothing Thinking. They both happen when we take one small problem and extrapolate it out.
