My Personal Decision Making Style
Each person has their own preferred decision-making style that they employ in making decisions in their day-to-day activities. My personal decision-making style is the analytical style. I tend to be the kind of person who likes to collect and analyze information thoroughly before making a decision. I like looking at matters from all possible angles before making a decision. If I fail to do this, I will not be confident about my decision. I will keep second-guessing myself and asking if I made the right choice. I tend to be keen when it comes to making decisions. I prefer dealing with reliable facts and data when making decisions because data does not lie, and it rarely leads one astray. Worth noting, I am the kind of person who likes seeking other people’s opinions while making a decision. This is because I like listening to other people’s points of view. While I like seeking outside counsel, other people’s opinions will rarely sway my decision, but rather, it helps me deny or confirm knowledge. I believe I am an analytical decision-maker because I am adaptable and have a high tolerance for ambiguity. Ambiguity prompts me to think deeper about my decision, thus helping me make informed decisions. One downside of being an analytical decision-maker is that I like to be in control of the decision process. Because I tend to be so focused on finding the best solution, I like to be in control of matters. Because I enjoy finding solutions, I ensure that all decisions I make benefit all parties involved. I also enjoy discussing new challenges and will do whatever it takes to find the best solution.
