Do you go in guns blazing? Or... Go into your head?

Is hesitation weakness in your opinion?

I would agree I get irritated when people are hesitant for too long. However you need to evaluate whether or not something is worth the expenditure. Survey and size up. Just do it fast. But yes, generally I don't like it when people are scared to make a decision. Sometimes I will either push them, or if it is apparent that they aren't confident in their decision, I'll often just make one for them (I know, I know), which often leads to me being responsible for said decision being seen to completion.

I tend not to turn back once I have decided. More so than hesitation, I find indecisiveness to be a weakness. That often wastes time and resources after a decision has been made and you are already invested. People who change their mind or regret things midway or after the fact or action has been taken... *pulls hair out*.

Guns blazing? Sure if I have a target. Otherwise... why? Just to look like Rambo or what?

my husband jokingly calls me Don Quixote.
Most the time, I've made a quick analysis. I'm right about 95-97% of the time. He's so damned hesitant that he's right 99% of the time, but the missed opportunities drive me up the wall!!! The hemming and hawing and last minute decision making drive me batty.

Piss or get off the pot.

I can go into my head while going in guns blazing because I'm not stupid.

To me as an infp I try explain NI using these apologies ' watching a 3d movie in a cinema at the front rows, you see the big picture from up close, same time you feel like you are living it simultaneously'. It's like looking at a tap pouring water and wondering where the water comes from, we'll ultimately it comes from the ocean, then wondering how the ocean accumulated the water, well that's kind of the point god created the water there for benefit and that's the source of 'drinking and bathing process' similarly I believe god made infjs and their NI to be of service to humankind so NI would be virtually impossible to explain IMHO, infjs is this accurate?

Depends on my goal and stress level.

I tend to take more time for life decisions.

As an opportunist this calls for whatever the situation presents.

I can go in shotguns blazing and adapt my plans to fit the scenario, it isn't rocket science.

I usually go in "guns blazing" (or at least that's what I am told). I personally think that once I make my decision there is no point in hesitating, I act immediately. I become extremely frustrated when people take to long to make a decision, I really don't have time to waste. I always say to my boyfriend that "I am going to make an executive decision" if I waited on him for everything things wouldn't get accomplished.

Something like this.

It's annoying when I inform someone of how things need to be done after like 5 seconds and they have to think about it and talk it out before coming to the same conclusion 10 minutes later. I could have been done already!

When the decision is made I go guns blazing. If deciding, I'm in my head.


.... Lol! Didn't realize how "duh" my statement is. How I see it, if I'm mulling over something it means it's probably beyond my depth at that moment and have to take it slower. If I'm going in guns blazing, I'm pretty confident that whatever it is I can handle regardless of expertise in that specific area. There are just some things I know I'm really good at and can handle at an aggressive pace.

Depends but it is mostly as other people here said, I usually take a little bit of time to consider it, then, when I decide something I stick with it and don't hesitate any longer.

Still the time it takes me to decide something depends both on it's importance and it's urgency, the only time I really dive headlong with little consideration is when the time frame is very small. I also might not even make a decision if I deem the matter unimportant...

Assess, then don't doubt yourself for any reason.

Hesitation is the seed of defeat.
