Decidophobia is the fear of making decisions.

The word decidophobia was first mentioned by Princeton Univerrsity philosopher Walter Kaufmann in his 1973 Without guilt and justice in which he writes about the phobia in length.

In Without guilt and justice, Kaufmann describes people with decidophobia as people who lackthe courage or will to sort through the diffrent sides in disagreements to find the truth. They would rather leave the deciding of what is the truth to some authority. This might be a parent or spouse. It might be a church or university or a political party. Once the decidophobe has relinquished authority to decide th truth then they will accept as truth anything argued by that authority.
