depends on the decision. Suicide, marriage, murder, geting religion, etc... are all decisions that require a little more than 7 seconds.

good point huehuecoyotl, youre saying emotions can cloud the decision making process, and waiting can keep someone from doing something rash like murder.

on the other hand lets say i get really pissed off at say a sales clerk, and you ask me should i kill them and i'll say no immediately, no matter how pissed i am.

but for someone who feels overwhelmed by their emotions a lot it's probably not a good thing.

"and you ask me should i kill them and i'll say no immediately, no matter how pissed i am."

Maybe you should learn to move past your preconceptions...

good point. maybe considering a decision longer when you're really emotional and there's big consequences is good because it will help you cool down.

Well, my point was what IF killing the clerk was the best decision? Don't automatically reject a solution as a knee jerk reaction. I am not endorsing murder, but carefully considered decisions. Now here is the obligatory Castaneda quote:

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That?s control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That?s abandon."

a lot of the time decisions are FOR emotions. You make decisions that lead you to better emotions. For example getting a better job, more money, less fear

i dont think mistakes are avoidable no matter how long you think and i believe control is an illusion. and by not making decisions in 7 seconds you never get to make the impulsive ones and learn from them.

example, i've snapped at people on these boards twice so far to the point where i've felt i should apologize afterward. i felt really embarrassed. i'm still an asshole sometimes, but i dont think that i'm going to be as ready to be snappy in the future, because i understand the consequences better.

the first example i was really snappy
the second time i just had an offensive tone in my post

like it got better.

Why put a limit on your decisions at all?

A decision takes as long as it takes.

efficiency. if you want to turn yourself into a powerful and fast analytical machine, you need to set up an efficient system; putting a time limit ensures that you won't spend a lot of time in the decision making process. Why you would want to do this is an entirely different matter, but that's why youd put a limit.

Hehe, let's give him another 7 seconds :cool:

i went to the liquor store with a friend of mine, he couldn't decide if he wanted porter or stout. spent five minutes talking about it. which was the right choice? he asked me. which one should he pick?

people need to feel secure. but the right decision is whichever one you make IMO.

the reason for the 7 seconds is to force oneself out of the self-deception that thinking provides security.
