Bounty: 50

Why does a person’s mind keep imagining situations with problems that do not exist and continue solving those problems in the imagination?
This keeps the person generally in absent-mindedness and oblivious of the real problems at hand and fails to solve real problems in life.
Is is any syndrome or disorder?
What is the solution?
IS there something like CBT/DBT/IPSRT that can make a change?

Suppose I am doing the laundry while simultaneously taking out the trash, so am carrying a bag of dirty clothes in one hand and a bag of rubbish in the other. I might be on autopilot where I lift up the lid of the garbage bin, throw my laundry into it and turn to walk away before then realising what I have done: thrown the wrong bag one into the bin i.e. “right idea, wrong object”.

I know that it’s some sort of inattention effect that is studied in cognitive psychology, but can somebody tell me what the correct name for this phenomenon is?

Dual-task interference is closer to the concept I’m looking for
