- Uhh. This article is about indecisiveness. I think you were looking for this, but I don't know.
Indecisiveness or indecision is the inability to decide. It's your decision to believe this. I'm not kidding. Or am I? This inability is experienced by all people but in different extents. As determined by numerous local studies, indecisiveness is encountered every hour by 65% of the North American population on mainly multiple choice tests, voting booths, 50% Off! shopping sprees, and when to check what time it is. Not all of the studies have come to the same conclusion. About 10% of studies show that indecisiveness is caused by an external factor, not contained to our minds.
Indecisiveness is described best by this author:
Indecisiveness... well... it's... uh... how would you describe it? It's when you... erm... no, that's wrong. Suffice to say, I'll finish this article later. No, I'l do it now. No, tomorrow... perhaps. Which? Oh, do I finish this article now or later? Jesus this is hard.
Yes, it's that hard. Well, not that hard.
edit The first undecidable question
Scientists and theorists are currently studying the origin of indecision. They determined that the first occurrence of indecisiveness is during the times of the Stone Age regarding the famous invention, the wheel. When the first stone carvers made the round, circular stone wheel, they faced a problem. The scientific community posed a hypothesis that the carvers' question was:
|Should we charge extra for installation?|
Do you take Visa?
edit Ways to deal with indecision
“False. I mean true. I mean false.”
There are ways to deal with indecisiveness. Some ways include die-rolling, flipping toast, and picking coins out of a hat. Here are popular methods that have been found effective.
edit Two-sided die
The two-sided die is usually used to make a “yes or no” type of decision. This die is usually thrown in the air above someone's head. If the die falls on “heads,” then the result is “yes.” Otherwise, the result is “no.” When used properly, almost all of the indecisiveness is removed from the user's situation. However, without a die, indecision increases proportionally to time.
edit Asking on a website forum
A website forum is extremely useful for decisions that may have multiple outcomes. Someone with indecisiveness can simply browse the Internet to a forum and simply ask their question. Here is a short example (includes mouse-over tooltip notes on some parts):

edit Win the lottery
This method requires purchasing some lottery tickets. A person using this method will think of a situation and several possible outcomes or decisions. Assign each outcome a number starting from zero. Purchase a ticket and wait until the the numbers are published. Next, match the number of winning numbers to your assigned outcomes. For example, if you have 4 of the winning numbers matching your ticket, then do outcome #4. Finally, discard the ticket (preferably into the recycle bin).
