What's your attitude when you're making decisions? Hastily, or thinking thoroughly before you decide?

I usually play it safe. Because If I played it hasty, I'd do something I wouldn't want.

If I was making a decision[which is not often] I would play it safe as I may end up regretting it if I did it hasty

I play it safe, of course, so that I wouldn't do something I regret later on, like what happened to me many times.

Play it safe because when I don't, I end up making the wrong decision.

I'm dangerously impulsive. In my mind I'm always ready to face the consequences after doing something most would call reckless, and of course I almost always end up regretting my decisions . Later down the road I appreciate the experience, though; and I'm learning to control my impulses.

Hasty when it's about doing things, safe when it's about buying things. I get bad cases of buyer's remorse but nothing similar when it comes to actions because they usually become memories that I can laugh about later.

I play it safe, but I do always consider my initial gut instinct when I make my decision.

The phrase "Better safe than sorry" comes to mind. I always like to weigh out my options a lot of the time before making a decision. I don't want to act too quickly, otherwise I might end up regretting it. Although, I am guilty of making some rash decisions in the past.

Most of the time I'll think about things if it's serious, but if I'm just making a stupid little decision it'll be based on how I feel right then and there. It just depends.

For me it depends on the situation. If it's a hard decision to make, I usually take my time and think it through. If it's pretty easy, I like to answer as soon as possible.

I think it through far too much to the point where if I don't make a hasty decision, the time will pass and I'll miss out on whatever it is I have to make a decision about. So then I usually just play eenie meenie miney moe lol.

Life is all about risk and rewards. Sometimes you don't have time to think about decisions and you just got to act how you feel is best. Other times, you have all the time in the world to think things through and act accordingly.
Playing card games, you have to take risks in order to be victorious and sometimes you lose because of that risk. In the end, I would consider myself a mixture of the two.

For me, I am the mixture of both (hasty and play it safe), it depends on the situation I'm in.

Quite hastily, and thankfully with no regret. I chose what I chose, no turning back.

I always think through every major decision thoroughly, but with some of the smaller things I'll be a bit headstrong and hastily rush into things.

Like Cosmotone8, if it's major, I'll spend a year deciding if I must xD but if little, Option A xD
Anyways, like Elendil, "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien" xD

I think things through before I make a decision, but I overthink things at times.

I play it a little too safe, to the point where people can sometimes get impatient with how long it takes me to decide something :p
