Choices and decisions



Choice. Usually, there are choices.
Choices could lead to ~ 1. Bewilderedness 2. Confusion 3. Disorientation 4. Lost 5. Perplexed 6. Unclear 7. Unsure.
The thought process of select a logical choice from among the available options. When trying to make a good decision, a person must weight the positives and the negatives of each option, and consider all the alternatives. For effective decision making, a person must be able to forecast the outcome of each option as well, and based on all these items, determine which is the best for that particular situation. The outcome is a judgement and accordingly, the process may be called decision making.

Nothing is more important to well being of
the society than decision making and problem solving
but our population is inadequately trained in
problem solving and decision making

A decision maker needs only four types of information to construct a Decision Tree and they are;
  1. What are my possible courses of action ?
  2. What are the events that might follow from those actions ?
  3. What is the likelihood of each event ?
  4. What is the value of each event to me ?
 An example of a simple Decision Tree is displayed below.
However, seemingly usually, there is no choice. People used to say, ' No choice is choice '.
Good Luck !
