    Default Do you enjoy making decisions? (6

    I hate making decisions. I endlessly analyze each option and never ever feel confident. I worry about the possible negative outcomes of each decision, and really would rather stay with what I know and not move forward. Moving forward is very scary. That said, there is a streak of curiosity in me, and I will move forward if I believe somebody has my back and will protect me, and I will do my best to protect them. This is probably a 6 issue. That said, I have a big series of decisions coming up, but that is for another thread.

    Do I enjoy making decisions?

    It depends on the decision.

    Try not caring so much. Sounds silly, but if you can get into the mentality of 'it's all a game', then you will start feeling more comfortable 'taking shots' instead of whatever you're doing now . . .

    The only types of decisions I enjoy feel unconscious and automatic and are typically aesthetic in nature.

    I tend to make decisions quickly at times when I want to just get it over with. There are a lot of times I should do more "due diligence" when deciding financial and pragmatic things, but I just can't stand it. My brain won't hold very many details, so i get overwhelmed more quickly than average on decisions that require comparing many varied, external details.

    I do enjoy choosing which earrings to wear in the morning and which notes to play when improvising with someone else, but I don't deliberate much. It's safe to go with whatever feels right, so it's freeing. Choosing a phone plan, computer model, type of car, etc. is extremely unpleasant to me.

    I have no problem making decisions. They aren't always easy - they aren't suppose to be so I make the best, most informed ones I can.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I enjoy it. I was raised to have integrity and take pride in all that I am and in all that I do; including the way I treat people. Fe may not be my strongest function, but I try! Consequently, I have a low tolerance for when others don't try and there's bad decision-making and disrespectful behavior involved that encroaches on my boundaries or the boundaries of others.

    Yes, it does sound silly. It sounds dangerous, too. What if I make a decision that makes it to where I am unable to afford food or shelter? It helps if I can consult others when decision making, but I also have to be on the lookout for those who conspire against me.

    I love you. I suppose that though I value what you just said, I have doubt in myself.

    There is no emotion involved in most of my decision making. For example: I just changed the channel on the TV. No joy or sadness whatsoever.

    In a modern society, that outcome is impossible unless you are on hard drugs. Your last sentence sounds paranoid. Trust me, I'm not conspiring against you, I don't even know you.
