Inactive decision making

Inactive decision making

Inactive decision making is when the decider does nothing consequential to make a definite choice. In effect, the choice is to let the problem resolve itself. This approach is quite common in everyday human decision making due to the peculiarities of human nature. However, it is not a rational approach to making decisions, for little or no reasoning is actually done. From a strategic viewpoint, the decider is forgoing opportunities to influence the outcome.
