A Psychology of Decision Delay and Decision Avoidance.
Taylor, William L.
Psychology: A Quarterly Journal of Human Behavior, v16 n4 p41-46 Win 1979
The decision-making process becomes maladaptive through the use of avoidance and delay. The irrational decision maker will try to remove him/herself from an uncertain situation by ignoring, postponing or shifting the responsibility for the problem. Personality and environment affect the process. (JAC)
