Have you heard about Satisficers and Maximizers? We learned about the concept from Gretchen Ruben:
Satisficers are those who make a decision or take action once their criteria are met. That doesn’t mean they’ll settle for mediocrity; their criteria can be very high; but as soon as they find the car, the hotel, or the pasta sauce that has the qualities they want, they’re satisfied.
Maximizers want to make the optimal decision. So even if they see a bicycle or a photographer that would seem to meet their requirements, they can’t make a decision until after they’ve examined every option, so they know they’re making the best possible choice. Want to know if you are a Satisficer or a Maximizer? Here's a great scientifically based quiz to help you out. Oh, and if you're a maximizer, you might want to see the research behind the concept. If so, here's a link to the original paper from the Journal of Personal and Social Psychology.

Oh, and if you're a maximizer (wink wink), you might want to read the actual research behind the concept. If so, check out this paper from the Journal of Personal and Social Psychology.
