Hamlet Over Thinking

Hamlet was an intelligent character, but I thing personally if made him maybe over think things a little more than he should have. The over thinking I feel like made him make poor judgements towards certain things. One of the things Hamlet over thought was Claudius marrying his mother, Gertrude, two months after his father dying. At one point, Hamlet rehearsed a reenactment over a character poisoning someone’s drink and killing them, he inferred that scene as being Claudius killing his father.
