decision making

There are two types of decision-makers: “maximizers” and “satisficers.”

A maximizer looks at every possible choice to determine the strongest contender. 

A satisficer goes with “good enough.” 

This article "How to Be a Better Decision Maker"
 in  Real Simple Magazine found that 
satisficers are happier with their choices.

They also have more free time, 
since they’re not laboring over the alternatives.

Are you a “maximizer” or “satisficer"?

I don't have to think much or read the article to KNOW which one I am! haha
But I'll probably read the article because I love the magazine.
Which one are YOU?

I'm sometimes one, other times the other. Does that make sense?
