If You Have Difficulty Making Decisions, This Test Will Show You The Way

Written by Chandrama Deshmukh

Decision-making isn’t always easy. The fear of having a negative impact may cause you to refrain from making important decisions, which in turn could lead to failure. It is always good to have someone help you make a decision but there are times when you don’t have anyone for advice. In situations like this, you are caught in a fix and confused as to what you should do. Tossing a coin can sometimes help but you cannot always rely on this solution for all your problems.

So what can you do in a sticky situation like this? Well, first and foremost, fret not! This easy test will help you find out if you are a good decision maker or not. And if not, then it can help you learn just how to tackle the situation. Enough of building up, let’s get to the good stuff now. Prepare for some much-need enlightenment and introspection!

All you have to do is take a quick glance at the image below.

The Boy


If you noticed the boy first, it means you are constantly looking for ways to be in control. The truth is that control is only an illusion and no one is ever entirely in control of any situation. Which is why it is necessary to have a free and open mind while taking decisions. Let the universe work everything out for you and hope for the best. After all, as Robert Burns would say, “the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”

The Signboard


In my opinion, the signboard is the weakest decision-making habit. This shows that you are confused and have limited confidence in yourself. Seeking advice from people who have gone through similar experiences could help you resolve your own problems but that might not always be the case. Even though experience matters, it is not necessary for you to follow the same path as someone else. Sometimes you have to just go with your gut feeling and act instinctively. Instinct-based decisions generally have the best outcomes.

The Road


The road signifies that you are currently on a path that is noble and right, yet you feel as if it isn’t the right path for you. Life is full of twists and turns; sometimes you have to take multiple pit stops to get to the top. There is no easy route to your final destination. Everyone has to go through the same process of wrong turns to reach their desired goal. We all have to learn from our mistakes, that is just how life works.

Just because your path does not look like what you imagined it would be, does not mean you won’t eventually reach your destination! So don’t ever give up and keep going down that road. And if you still feel afraid of failure, well, take our advice – make that wrong turn.

Remember, failures are the stepping-stones to success. So go ahead, make some detours and take some chances! After all, life is full of surprises. You never know… a wrong turn may just put you on the right road.

The Snake


The snake symbolizes danger. In most scenarios, it is used as a sign of poison and fear. Similarly, in your subconscious mind, you are very concerned about how the result of your decision will hurt you or someone you love. Deep down, you are worried that it will have a negative impact on your life and that you will let down the people you care about. This threat could be fictitious and may not even have the potential to affect you physically or emotionally, and yet you live in constant fear.

It is the fear of the outcome that is stopping you from taking a step forward and making a positive decision. Fear unwittingly controls your life and has taken over your decision-making abilities. One must always remember that snakes can be dangerous only if you let them be. They can be controlled and tamed if you know where they hide. Hence, spot your fears first. The rest comes naturally.

I hope that this test cleared up your queries on the different aspects of decision-making and how it can affect you. If you need help with decision-making, don’t hesitate to reach out and seek guidance from the people you trust. Always be confident about your decisions and don’t back down last minute! Never waver, be firm and move forward.

Best of luck!
