    Default ENFP here. I am totally decisive about small things, indecisive about big things.

    I was reading in my previous original post that I had mentioned that I'm indecisive. I guess I'm not as indecisive as I thought in small ways. I know exactly what I want to eat, buy, try on, etc. It's the big decisions in life that really get me stuck. Sometimes I've become so immobilized that I have to make long pros/cons lists before I can do anything. So I guess that NF's are different in what things that they are decisive about. I am happy to know that I can at least decide on the less life-changing events easily! Yeay!

    ehh the big things will figure themselves out

    *amused* I am exactly the opposite. I can make big decisions and carry them out, mostly because before I make the decision I've already ruminated the variables and different possibilities, worked out plans A & B & C etc. Almost every big decision in my life was planned well ahead of time.

    On the other hand, I hate deciding what to eat, what to wear, what to buy, etc. I can eat the same thing for days on end, have exactly the same pattern of clothes to save the trivial decision-making, and seldom buy anything not geek-related.

    yes quite a bit. the big ones i dont even pay attention to. for example. im not going to decide on my future major. i have a vague idea. i know i wanna work with people and computers. im thinking a computer science major with a computational neuroscience degree but really, idk. i dont really care. those things always work out. now what to make for breakfast... im down for that lol.
