Abstract  Indecisiveness is a general tendency to repeatedly experience difficulties in making all sorts of life decisions and is a major concern of career psychologists. It has a great impact on career decision-making, such as decisional procrastination, tunnel vision, and post-decisional problems etc. It is not only associated with many personality factors, but also with some clinical symptoms. The position of indecisiveness in the career decision-making concept system and how to translate it into Chinese are discussed. Further researches about this issue are as follows: the structure of indecisiveness, the impact of indecisiveness on decision-making in the dynamic context, the antecedent variables of indecisiveness, the longitudinal study on indecisiveness etc.
