The society generally supports the freedom of choice, but Barry Schwartz here argues otherwise and I can relate to what he’s talking about.
Sometimes being given too many choices doesn’t quite make me happy. Instead of settling for something easily, I’d normally take some time to study and evaluate the options I have, in hopes of reducing the risk of making the wrong decisions. The process can be exhausting, especially when one has limited resources. When the end result (i.e. the purchases made) aren’t up to my expectations, I’m bound to be disappointed, because by right it should after I’ve weighed my options!
I suppose that’s one of the reasons why I choose to only fill my wardrobe with clothes of only several colors, so that I can work with and worry less.
