Making a fuss over the difference between Career Indecisiveness or Career Indecision might sound like splitting hairs, but the two circumstances likely arise for different reasons and therefore have distinct remedies.
So if you are struggling to make a decision regarding your career, it’s worth considering if you suffer from Career Indecisiveness or Career Indecision. How to tell the difference?
Researchers have found that Career Indecisiveness is a symptom of overall indecisiveness related to anxiety and difficulties with problem-solving. By contrast, the greater a person’s Emotional Intelligence (e.g., ability to recognize his/her emotions, the emotions of others, cope with everyday problems, manage stress and have the capacity to be optimistic), the lower his/her Career Indecision. Career Indecision is a typical stage through which most of us progress when making educational and/or employment decisions.
This tells us that methods to reduce anxiety, such as meditation, may help alleviate Career Indecisiveness, as well as struggles with making other decisions. On the other hand, training programs that aim to boost Emotional Intelligence should reduce Career Indecision. In fact, there is evidence for such.
