Always Hungry

Do you have decidophobia? Are you in a state of not knowing what to eat for every meal?

In our life experience, having too many options makes people feel overwhelmed. Moreover, time constraints and the urging of others can also make anxiety even worse.

A research report from Caltech states: the ideal number of options for a person is probably somewhere between 8 and 15. Too many options will cause choice overload and too much information will hinder thinking and cause selection barriers.

The protagonist had dicidophbia. She came to a restaurant for lunch with her friend. Her friend ordered the meal quickly, but she couldn't make a decision. Faced with all kinds of delicacies on the menu, she imagined that she entered the menu and ate all of them. But later she found that every dish surprised her in different ways.

Under the urging of her friend and the waiter, she finally gave up thinking and ordered the dishes recommended by the waiter under stress. Just when she thought the problem of decidophobia was over, there was still a paired dessert waiting for her to decide. Yet another problem would make it even harder for her to finish the meal.
