    I could say I'm indecisive in everyday life matters like which colors to pick, which restaurant to go to, which food to order, etc... Or maybe it was not indecisiveness that I experienced. Nonchalance would be a better word. I wouldn't like it when people judge me as indecisive in general when I didn't give any rigid opinion about what to eat, what to pick, which looks better, blah blah blah. They don't really matter to me.

    The indecisiveness that perceived by others about us usually could be explained by our auxiliary Fi. To us it's really not important what to pick, cause everything has something good in it. But when somebody demand a fixed opinion or statement from us, our Fi kicks in and makes us sensitive to the other person's mood. We're not sure whether the other person would like it or not if we pick this or that.

    2. Introverted ethics

    IEEs are naturally sensitive to mood, atmosphere, and feelings. They rarely say or do anything that would worsen people's feelings, preferring instead to distance themselves from people and social situations that produce negative feelings. IEEs are naturally skilled at regulating the degree of emotional intimacy between people, which can mean being businesslike (yet polite) as well as warm and inviting.

    When faced with a sad individual, the IEE will usually try to understand what is wrong, and will often try to coax the individual with kind words and actions. The IEE often displays a straight face even when faced with strong negative feelings.

    Always on the IEE's mind are the feelings of his or her friends. If the IEE does not know whether an individual is feeling good or ill will, the IEE will prod the individual until he or she displays their attitude.

    IEEs are concerned with the opinions and feelings of those around them and try to avoid saying things that would cause arguments and bad feelings[. He does this effortlessly.
    For more important issues or about things that I value, I usually know what I want or think. I could state right away my strong opinion whenever asked. Or maybe I developed my Ti well.

    Perceivers are generally indecisive.

    To the OP, I won't speak for anyone else, but no.

    And if I seem indecisive, it's because I don't see it as important to the well-being of my S.O. or myself.

    That explains it very well. That's how I am.

I find that once I commit to something, I am COMMITTED... locked in... stuck... so I'd rather not commit at all. I don't think I'm really fearful of it though. More like... simply opposed to it.

    I'm unbelievably indecisive. During the Xmas period last year it took me 30 minutes, 30 god damn minutes to decide what 2 colour wrapping papers I was going to buy.

    I'm a libran, not that I put much stock in all of that, I'm just conjuring up an image of what I looked like in the store, standing there with one roll in one hand and one roll in another, weighing up my options. Now that's sad.

    Am I indecisive?

    Crap, I don't know: I can't decide!

    I guess that's where our decision-making functions have to be given a chance.. Fi when it comes to important stuff, and Te for weighing the pros and cons in an objective fashion.

    For me I just see no reason to make a strong decision... like for example if I'm hanging out with friends, why would we make a plan that we just do this or that, when we could just do whatever will be fun. There are always several options and never any reason to stay strictly to one.

    I'm so indecisive, I don't know where to start, haha. But yes on the restaurant thing...this is even worse when MAKING the plans of a get-together, though. You don't know who's driving, where you're going, what time you're arriving, and in the end you get other people to compromise while you interject "maybe"s and "I'm not sure"s. It's AWFUL.

    But in major matters, I find it much easier to make choices, because my values and beliefs are sound.
