T'Pshaw was a noted Vulcan satirist who commented that excessive self-analysis was counter-productive in that valuable time was used up without producing worthwhile results. This individual commented it with the summed up phrase "Over-emphasis on the examination of one's rationality is a good indication that one ought to have one's rationality examined." This work was similar to that of the Terran philosopher Solomon Short.

In 2267, Spock went through a process of analysis and resolution within a less than three second time frame but debated whether he took too long to reach his conclusions as a result of his Human heritage influencing his thought processes. At which point, he reminded himself on the works of T'Pshaw and Solomon Short on the futility of over-analysis. (TOS novel: The Galactic Whirlpool)
