Decidophobia —  fear of taking wrong decisions

The Reason People Cannot Make Decisions

The fear of choosing the wrong thing or having regrets about not going down a certain path is real. This decidophobia kicks in for the smallest of choices in our lives, due to the following reasons:

  • Lack of clarity.
  • Fearing the wrong consequences.
  • Assuming others have a better perspective.
  • Comparing ourselves to others.
  • Too many decisions.
