career decision-making difficulties, career indecisiveness, emotional intelligence, fear of failure, fear of commitment
Individuals with fear-based career indecisiveness exhibit extreme career decision-making difficulties (CDD) which prevent them from successfully making career decisions. Fear must be recognized as a significant contributor to indecisiveness in order to aid those with fear-based career indecisiveness. Career guidance professionals may help indecisive individuals by first identifying the causes of indecisiveness and the decision-making fear. Career indecisiveness may have either low career self-efficacy or low emotional intelligence as a contributor, each of which impact individuals differently. Career indecisiveness also involves either a fear of failure or a fear of commitment, which may contribute to CDD. Guidance for these individuals must be tailored to their specific combination of cause of indecisiveness (low career self-efficacy or low emotional intelligence) and type of career-making fear (fear of failure or fear of commitment).
