Lesson Summary

When you utilize these styles and include these factors in your decision-making process, you have granted yourself the time to draw on your personal experiences and respond accordingly.

As we talked about at the beginning of this module, careers are both ordered and disordered where the singular path to a one-dimensional career is gone. It will be up to you to use the styles and considerations we have provided to good use in helping you through the major and career decision-making process, both today and in the future.  


In this lesson, you learned:

  • Major and Career decisions are not linear.
  • To identify personal decision-making styles and strategies.
  • To consider how motivation, environmental factors, and risk-taking impact your decision-making process.

Continue on to the next lesson to look at decision processing strategies designed to help you in exploring all aspects of a decision and determining the conclusion best suited for you.
