Default How Do You Decide?

How do you make a hard decision? Do you study all the possibilities?
Do you go with your gut instinct? Do you ask people's opinions?
Do you procrastinate as long as you can?

This thread is simple.

Ask the next person how they would decide on a certain thing.

Example: How do you decide what to wear to a party at the boss's house when you don't know the details of the event?

Answer for me: I have a one size fits all outfit that I feel good in and it can be dressed up or down. Before I decide, I call someone else to see if she knows what kind of dress people are wearing. If she is clueless, I go with dark jeans or pants, silk blouse, good jacket, boots or heels depending on weather.

First question for next poster:

How do you decide where to go on vacation?



(Don't forget to ask the next person a question..or they can answer the same one you did.)

i haven't bought one in 10 years, but I'd probably stick with the same model, maybe with better mileage and a different color.

with cars I am Toyota.


How do you decide what to do with the $5000 you inherited?

I have a magic 8-ball. No, not that kind of 8-ball, and no, I wouldn't be spending any of the 5k on that kind of 8-ball either.

It would be straight to savings and used when needed, actually. How's that for exciting?

If there is any possible way I can avoid it, I don't call. Hate the phone.

But if it's a bill or ticket issue, I call because personal interaction works well for me with phone reps. I've found the keys to their hearts..just 3 questions and they are on my side.

I go by how long they are. Movies are for weekends or nights I can't sleep.

Series are recorded and watched at oddball times, like when i'm sick or snowed in..might watch the whole season in a marathon.

We have three tvs hooked to satellite, so there are no fights over what we watch.

A big sporting event is watched..but sometimes I get so nervous I flip on record and do something else, and sneak back to see how my team is doing. I think i'm a jinx if they start losing when I'm watching.

Tv viewing is a science here, i guess.

I don't know if it's midlife crisis or something, but I'm having a lot of thoughts about how a good number of my friendships, and I mean the "friends for life" ones, are just drifting (drifted?) away. I find it upsetting, and I'm not really an attention-needing "people" person. I try to stay in touch, and if I've reached out a few times and don't hear back, then I accept that they're probably gone. Of course there are the friends that, after years, get back in touch, and it's a great thing. Though I think we should know which friendships are timeless like that.

Yesterday, I recieved a surprise package, a book and soccer jersey, in the mail from a friend (who lives overseas) that I haven't seen in >15 years. I got all teared up like a little girl.

Friends are precious. We should really try to keep them.


How do you decide when it's time to stop putting money into the old car, and suck it up and get a new one?

I've never had an old car so I just know

How do you decide to just give up on a situation and not look back?

When you know in your heart it really is the best thing! Giving up goes against what we all know and feel, but your heart knows better than your head.

How do you decide you need to take a stand and fight for something you really want?

well, if they are Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, enough is never enough.


I don't have many of those kinds of decisions to make, but recently made a huge one. the enough is so much that i have to start eliminating bit by bit.
also, i have made a plan of action, but unfortunately being on the injury list has kept me from moving along on that.

I must confess i have been slow and passive on this situation, but finally have started, so I feel great weight off me. I wish i hadn't waited so long, tho.


How do you decide when something is important enough to speak up at a party or gathering, and maybe change the mood?

Depends where the conversation is headed. I believe that silence has a lot of power and is never a sign of weakness. If you know the parties involved, it's a judgement based on your past interactions with them. If you're not sure, silence is best option.

How do you decide what to make for dinner on a weekday?

You let your kids decide what they'd like to cook.

How do you manipulate, er convince people, you are exactly the right person for a job you want?

Let you know when I find out
I've been lucky and pretty much had the jobs handed to me

How do you decide if it's serious or not
