• Absolutely .. I think.
  • Yep, I decided that I wont decide on not answering this question, instead I just will. :)
  • life is just that confusing sometimes ... i have decided not to decide recently. i just do a lot praying and pretend i'm not thinking about it my non-decision.
  • Absolutely. I think it is very common for people to decide not to decide. It happens in political campaigns all the time. Some people call it compromise but I think it's just plain old unwillingness to take a stand for what you really believe and it is a decision not to decide.
  • you can't because you just decided............i'm not going to decide
  • If I may I'd like to post an excerpt from the song "Freewill" by Rush that I listened to yesterday and got me thinking about this question in the first place: You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice. If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice. You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill; I will choose a path that's clear- I will choose Free Will.
  • Yep: everything you do is a choice, including not making a choice! Trust me, it's the greatest loophole ever!
  • I dont know.
  • Only when I am undecided
  • Very much so
  • Definitely. I learned this while working at a small, VERY conservative insurance company. This is NOT the same thing as not being able to decide...or just not deciding. It's a conscious decision not to take any position; it's helpful to know all your options.
  • It depends if you're asking me whether or not I can decide not to decide whether I can decide not to decide, or if you're asking me whether or not I can decide to not decide on something else. In the first case, no, that'd be a paradox because to decide not to decide is to have decided, thus you couldn't have decided not to decide, because you did, etc. In the second case, yes absolutely; there's nothing wrong with deciding to remain neutral on a matter. Also, I don't think I'm going to say 'decide' again for quite some time now : P
  • If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
  • There's putting a decision off until later, or deciding a decision isn't necessary (it will take care of itself), or letting someone make the decision for you, yes I think you can.
  • Nope, because that's a decision.
  • I'm gonna have to think about his for awhile, can you reask later on?
  • I cannot decide not to decide because that would be considered a decision which I am am unable to decide.
  • always.
  • Sure but in doing so you've made a decision.
