Indecisiveness it is a type of career indecision that is characterized by a pervasive difficulty in making decisions regarding several life dimensions besides just career choice. Research has associated indecisiveness with a set of characteristics that indicates lower levels of psychological adjustment, like high levels of anxiety, low self-esteem, external locus of control and a poorly developed sense of identity. This study aimed to analyze the capacity of the variables mentioned above to predict indecisiveness. Using a sample of 521 college students, it was found that the regression equation accounted for 53% of the variance in the indecisiveness scores. Implications for intervention with indecisive individuals are discussed.
