When  the Cingulate system does not function properly, people has the tendency to get stuck on things - unable to shift their thinking to explore other options.  There are observations that some people got stuck on a thought and rethink the same thought over and over again, like a broken recording.  In other cases, negative behaviours or develop a tendency towards compulsion, for example the need to keep washing hands or the need to excessively check if the doors are lock.  Other low level of ACC activity include excessive or senseless worrying, moodiness, irritability, a tendency to say no without first considering about the questions being asked.  Do you know anyone like that?
