Abstract

We encounter many situations that require lifelong decision making. Decision making is that the individual prefers the most suitable one from different options. Individuals shape their own future in line with their decisions. Decisions taken not only produce personal results for the individual but also cause social consequences. Therefore, decision making is important in terms of affecting both individual and social life. Decision making is a gradual process that is affected by many individual and environmental factors. It is very important for decision makers to recognize the steps of this process and consider the variables that affect the decision making process. The fact that individuals make forward-looking, positive and personalized decisions is largely related to decision-making processes. The proliferation of options in every field in today's world makes it difficult to make the right decision. Depending on the development and change experienced, individuals need to manage the decision making process well, know what factors have an impact on the decisions, make timely decisions and think rationally about the options. In this study, recent studies that stand out in the literature on decision-making processes and the factors affecting decisions are examined and it is emphasized how more effective and better decisions can be made in this direction.

Keywords: Decision making, decision making process, decision making style, the right decision
