People usually put two-and-two together when they are asked how they think: I use my mind, think about something, and then make a decision based on that thought. For the most part, this is how the human brain works. We think of something with our mind and then make a decision or assumption based off of it. But you know what's surprising? Most of us are at fault for using our gut and our heart when making a decision. Sometimes, our gut decisions do not require any thinking and are done "on the spot." When it involves our heart, we revel over it - for hours, for days, and sometimes, even for years. When our mind and heart get entangled, decisions take a while to happen. For me, it takes months to make certain decisions whenever my heart gets involved.
The most influential factors in my decision-making process? 1) Will it hurt someone I know? 2) Will it affect someone I know, and if so, will the effect be detrimental or constructive? 3) How will this affect me in the long run?
I think the factors most important to me are the influential factors. How will it affect me? I guess sometimes I make my decisions superficially - just understanding the jist of everything and deciding off of whether or not it will affect me in some way or another. But sometimes, if it's something important, of course I look into it deeper - a LOT deeper - and I try to understand every aspect of the decision I'm trying to make. Yada dopple yaddaa ding dong.
Yeah.. pretttyy much.
