The Indecision Decision

No one wants to decide. People want someone or something else like an algorithm to tell them what to do.

Fortunately, outsourcing decisions in today’s world is possible.

  • Thinking about your future? Take the Myers-Briggs personality test to measure preferences like introversion and extroversion
  • Can’t decide which photo is best? Use the new app Roll which selects photos in your library based off an “aesthetic score.”
  • Want to cut your spending habits? Manage your finances more efficiently with Mint.

Algorithms and data inform decisions. Of course, you still need to decide if those decisions work out.

Decide first, then deduce. Determine the truth after the fact. Indecision is still a decision.
