From Thursday Threesome:
::Capricious: Governed or characterized by impulse or whim, lacking rational basis or likely to change suddenly::
Onesome: Characterized by impulse--Do you you consider yourself impulsive or do you tend to think everything through before you make a move?
I tend towards the impulsive, but I try to temper that on big decisions, like moving, for example. It's hard because I hate the tedium of trying to consider every angle -- I mean, really, who CAN think of every little possible outcome? Sometimes trying to think everything through can be a way to stall making a decision at all.
Twosome: lacking rational basis--If you are impulsive, do you rationalize and justify your actions? Like, since that item you bought on a whim was on sale, you really saved money by buying it?
Oh, hell yeah. LOL Just ask poor Jeff. Again, it's something I'm aware of and I really am trying to temper it, at least when it comes to spending money.
Threesome: or likely to change suddenly-- When you make up your mind, does it stay made up or do you tend to change your mind at the last minute? ...or do you waffle back and forth until you're forced to decide?
It stays made up unless some compelling thing comes to light that asks me to reconsider. A mind that is made up and closed is just as useless as a mind that is vacillating and gaping, in my opinion. It's dumb to stick to a decision just for the sake of sticking to it, if it becomes clear that it can and should be changed.
