    This isn't something I think about a lot to be honest!

    I don't hesitate to make decisions, so indecisiveness is a quality that I struggle to appreciate. If anything, I follow my intuition too blindly and move forward without assessing all the options before me. The extent to which I plan the future (esp. if it concerns romance/relationships) can be somewhat irrational.

    Hi

    Thanks for tagging me.

    I get a sense of relief in making decisions, so yeah, I enjoy making them. I always counsel people that if you feel stymied, or at an impasse, then it is better to not make a decision, and as the Rush song says, you still have made a decision.

    Now that I walk with God, decision-making has become so much much much better! I seem to understand when to start and when to stop; when to decide and when to wait. It's really more about knowing the 'when' that knowing the 'what' when it comes to deciding, isn't it....Or knowing IF one should. If you trust God to get your back, then that helps you lose the fear that might be stifling you, allowing you to decide what you need to decide.

    I avoid decision making unless
    a) I know the outcome
    b) If someone else chooses the wrong one (I'm surrounded by people who don't think ugh)
    c) If someone is harming someone else
    d) If what they're doing isn't right
    e) I have a gut feeling (it's mostly true)

    Depends. One thing I know I hate with a passion is making decisions that affect other people, can't do it for the life of me, whenever my friends ask for me to decide on something that involves them I always say I don't know and make them do the decision-making. I don't enjoy being responsible for something that happens to someone other than me. Making decisions solely for myself is fine though, I can analyse it a lot too but essentially I'll just do what I feel like in the end and I usually leave decision making to the last minute if possible when I don't know what I want. I'm usually just relieved to have made a decision and know that I can move on from that, though I do like versatile decisions :p

    Those are hard for me and so are decisions involving more than $10.

    Not so much. I tend to put things off, esp the hard ones.

    But once I know in my gut what I'm going to do, then I just go with it, and remind myself I can change the plan/improvise later if I really need to.

    They are not always easy, quick or comfortable, but to be able to make them is a gift I do not take for granted. To a fault, I have a very low tolerance for keeping unsettled things in the air.
