Individual Decision-Making in a Controlled State of Mind

Zulfakar Zulfakar


Humans generally have individual, or personal desires, which can usually have a driving value, in organizational activities, decision-making made by individuals often experiences difficulties or obstacles, if it occurs spontaneously, it is different if the decision is taken in a calm state of mind or still under the control of that individual. This article generally discusses decision-making taken individually in a controlled state of mind, the results will be different, when compared with individuals who make decisions in a chaotic state of mind, the goal is that each individual when he wants to make a decision, should pay attention to their state of mind at that time because the mind is a very important part and can have an overall impact in making a decision. Thus, the individual's thoughts when making a decision, must be considered in the context of the decision-making, whether it is specific or general in joint managerial decision-making in the organization. To achieve this goal well, this paper describes the role of the mind that must be in a controlled state in any decision-making, whether individual or group.
