Understanding the Decision Making Processes of Indecisive Consumers

Indecisiveness is a chronic, domain-general difficulty making decisions. The goal of this research is to understand the consumption choice processes of indecisive individuals. Preliminary results reveal that indecisive individuals spend more time evaluating alternatives, are more distressed by time limitations, and are overly concerned with how others perceive their choices.
