In our daily lives, we are often called upon to make decisions, sometimes
more and sometimes less important. After all, what we are today it has been largely determined by the decisions we have taken against from time. Therefore, our whole life forms a chain of decisions. Decision is the process of choosing a direction of activities among other directions. There is always a person who is going to make a decision, a situation that requires making a decision and certain information that they can be exploited when making the decision. The person is processing mentally consider the alternatives and weigh the possible outcomes based on: a) the possibility that they have to happen and b) the value or utility that they have for himself / herself.

A decision may be the end of a process, but it may lead us to new facts and new situations, where we will still have to make new decisions in order to adapt to the new reality. Undoubtedly, it is always a matter of making the best decisions possible. For this reason, we must, starting from our wishes, weigh very carefully the actual conditions in relation to this decision, the obstacles and difficulties.

The factors that usually influence us in the decision-making process
related to ourselves (for example: values, expectations, interests, emotional state at the time of the decision), but also with our social environment (for example: the people we associate with, the prospects offered, the ability to access sources of information). Of course, we do not all operate in the same way in the decision-making process, since we are influenced to different degrees by different factors. Thus, some rely more on logic, some on intuition and their feelings, while others rely more on external factors, for example, on the opinion of others.


The following questionnaire will help you understand how you usually make your personal decisions:
