    Re: Indecision

    Indecision (not chronic indecision) as a good thing: Indecision is essential

    And in cultures like Japan, indecisiveness is more often seen as being thorough: Indecisiveness and Culture

    It actually for some reason took me a while to understand what you meant. probably cause I just woke up from a siesta. Although I was refferring to my long winded responses/posts.

    You definitely master the art of copy and paste but in all fairness you do have the ability to find the relevant articles to guide people in a direction and usually quite fast I think i once referred to you as being our resident forum search engine.

    And i'm also sure that like when Steve would answer a simple question with a slew of unending questions

    We can all drive people bats at times with more than they can chew at one time. Hopefully the majority understand we are trying to be helpful.

    There is a major distinction though between important decision making and the type of indecision that was referenced in the original post.

    Re: Indecision

    BTW, psychology can pathologize where sociology can normalize, e.g.:

    One key argument is that a collectivist society typically demands roles for numerous people in every major decision, even decisions that would be considered “personal” or “private” in individualistic societies. Decisiveness would be antithetical to such roles and therefore discouraged.

    Re: Indecision

    And:

    The DSM focuses almost exclusively on individual pathology to the dangerous minimization of social, historical and environmental factors such as poverty, racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, gender biases, ageism, violence, etc. This limiting focus has serious ramifications.

    Therapists, who uncritically follow the DSM medical model, are likely to place undue emphasis on individual emotional problems as causal factors rather than opening to the larger possibility that the individual is symptomatic due to familial, political or societal system dysfunctions.

    Social psychologists call such exclusion of social factors and excessive focus on individual pathology the “fundamental attribution error.”
