優柔不断
yuu.juu.fu.dan

Literally: gentle – soft – non – sever / judge / decide

Alternately: Waffling. Vacillating. Hesitating to choose. Lacking resolve or clarity and unable to come to a decision. A condition indicative of choice overload at best, lack of self-awareness or willingness to take responsibility for one’s decisions at worst.

Notes: Some people may accidentally write (type?) homophones 優従 (which has no meaning) for 優柔 or 普段 (“ordinary”) for 不断, but these are errors.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
