How Do You Deal With Indecisiveness In A Relationship? Everyone who’s been in any relationship or even friendship knows the worst question a person can ask them is “So what should we eat?”. It’s the question that probably ends more relationships than it should. The where-do-we-eat question makes even the most composed of people internally groan because of the conversation that has to follow. The core reason why this question is so hard to answer is because of indecisiveness. So, let’s talk about it.
How Do You Deal With Indecisiveness In A Relationship? Outline
- What do you think indecisiveness does to a relationship?
- How do you deal with your own indecision?
- Are there things you do to cope with someone’s indecision?
- Caltech conducted a study focusing on “choice overload.” They gave varying numbers of choices to willing participants and hooked them up to fMRI monitors. The theory is that our brain does a quick calculation based on the freedom of choice and the effort needed to make a decision. Caltech discovered that there is a “sweet spot” between 8 to 15 number of options (with 12 being the overall average). Anything less and anything more and our brains don’t really want to process the information.
- What are your thoughts on this?
- Things you can implement in to your own life to help curtail indecision?
- Do you have any advice you would give to someone who deals with indecision in their own lives (internally or externally)?
