When someone is incapable of making a choice on behalf of others, and structures everything they do to present every possible option and opportunity, what tends to be the cause of this?

  • $\begingroup$ Possibilities: 1) a rigid personality that tends to have to consider all possibilities, 2) no emotional drive to choose one thing over another, 3) fear of choosing wrongly. I have no research for this, but that is what comes to mind. Sometimes it is called "analysis paralysis" and there has been a lot written about that. Please add more details about the situation you describe by: "structures everything they do to present every possible option and opportunity"? Do you mean making opportunities for others, or trying to consider everything before deciding? $\endgroup$ – user9634 Jan 26 '16 at 13:12
  • $\begingroup$ Read the first part of the sentence more strongly, as though it's in bold. That should answer both your questions. $\endgroup$ – Confused Jan 26 '16 at 18:51
