What Causes Indecisiveness?
Indecisiveness can have various causes, just like most other symptoms. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose indecisiveness, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time
- Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.
Step 1: List all Possible Causes
We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "indecisiveness" as a symptom. For example, lack of sleep.
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
frequent racing thoughts
difficulty getting out of bed
dark areas under eyes
bags under eyes
often taking naps
sleeping less than necessary
somewhat disturbed sleep
having trouble concentrating
short-term memory failure
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of indecisiveness.

In the Mental Symptoms
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about decisiveness:
Decisiveness. How quickly do you make decisions? This is not related to how 'clear' or 'foggy' your mind is: some people with clear minds have great difficulty making a decision, and some people with foggy minds make quick decisions ('snap decisions').
→ Slowly/with difficulty - I am indecisive
→ With average speed / don't know
→ Quickly/easily - I am very decisive
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either being indecisive or being decisive, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as Lack of Sleep
