    Arrow Are xNFP's indecisive by nature?

    I can say that as an ENFP I tend to be indecisive. I guess it's because I see the positives in so many things that it makes it difficult to commit to one thing. For example, I changed majors in college many times. I find also that making a decision sometimes can be terrifying. Does anyone else experience this?

    Sometimes I can be very indecisive.....like in restaurants when ordering food. I am bad at making plans because I cannot decide where to go; I like other people to make some (less serious) decisions for me.
    Other times I know exactly what I want and have no issue in making a decision. More and more, I just take the dive and save myself the agonizing.
    I've found my past indecisiveness to cause me to lose an opportunity or over-think things & actually make a bad choice. Trusting my initial feelings & gut instinct works better for me, as long as I have the nerve to take action.

    I was actually thinking maybe I have ADHD at some point but I think it's just more of my general personality.

    I know that I am.

    Indecision is a thrilling, day and night adrenaline rush treasure hunt for new and old possibilities in the sand. There's always an opportunity sprouting from a lost opportunity, so there's never a need to feel down for very long.

    I'm very indecisive. I keep waiting for new possibilities and even if there aren't any on the way, I still lay off the deciding to the last moment. Then I just do it and later keep wondering if it was the right decision.

    To be honest I think that the answer is yes.

    Yeah, especially when it is something important. I'm always thinking about what you can't see pre-decision. There are some things you can't know ahead of time, but you don't want to choose wrong and then wish you could go back. 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 not sure if I'm indecisive .

    I'm starting to like my Te though. I don't know when it crept in, but it rules. I'm still random, just have this cool thing that puts everything in perfect order. Like time management, and prioritisation. And I notice the difference from the NTPs and stuff at work really clearly now.
