Photoshop: Brush overlapping/buildup

Using any brush makes the colors "overlap" and buildup in this weird behavior shown in the picture. Can anyone help me get rid of this?

I am sorry that you find this behavior weird.  I can only guess what you want to happen.  If you set the opacity of the brush to 100% this will not happen.  If you instead set the foreground color to 50% gray or whatever you want it to be then paint the overlap will still be 50% gray.  If you set the brush opacity to 50% then when you overlap the result will be 50% gray plus 50% of 50% or 75%.  That is what it should do.

in your options bar at the top, turn off the button to the right of opacity which changes the transparency with brush pressure...

If you toggle the transfer setting in the brush settings there it should make

the brush stoke solid and stop this overlapping effect.

Note: you must turn the flow up to 100% as well.
