We develop and validate a multidimensional inventory of indecisive behaviors that loads on three dimensions: (1) Neurotic/Impulsive (e.g., trying on multiple outfits in the morning); (2) Perfectionistic/Compulsive (e.g., spending weeks researching electronics purchases); (3) Unprepared (e.g., arriving at the head of a fast food line without knowing what to order).
