Whether it is deciding what to watch on TV, or which job offer to accept, Fobo (Fear of better options) can affect anyone.
A Fobo-afflicted person may not make a decision due to wanting complete information or simply be overwhelmed with the daunting options.
Sophisticated apps and social media only accelerate FOBO, giving us unlimited options. We are unable to decide due to a constant flow of new plans, events, invitations or commitments.

They often feel disappointed with their final decision after making it.
Satisficers are the ones that make "good enough" decisions, have modest expectations and are generally happier and more satisfied after making their decision.
