The average person takes around 10 minutes to make an everyday decision, a study has revealed.
Of the 35,000 “remotely conscious” decisions we make every day, 226.7 of them are about food alone.
The average person will make 773,618 decisions over a lifetime – and will come to regret 143,262 of them. A typical adult makes 27 judgments a day – usually starting with whether to turn off the alarm or hit snooze.
The duration of decision making may range from a month to four years, but usually takes about 12 months. Most processes run into disruptions and interruptions, which lengthen the time taken. Measuring decision making is difficult since it is virtually impossible to define the beginning and end of the process.
It is estimated that every two minutes the typical driver makes 400 observations, 40 decisions, and one mistake while driving. That is why it is important to never assume that other drivers will make the right decision.

Various internet sources estimate that an adult makes about 35,000 remotely conscious decisions each day [in contrast a child makes about 3,000] (Sahakian & Labuzetta, 2013).
In the infographic, busyteacher.org says that a teacher makes over 1500 educational decisions every school day, a constant juggle of manager, content holder, master communicator, and support system.

The survey revealed that the average person makes a massive 773,618 decisions over the course of their lifetime. However, we usually end up regretting about 143,262 of these choices.
The theory surrounding decision fatigue is that a human’s ability to make decisions can get worse after making many decisions, as their brain will be more fatigued. … Each decision reduces the charge of the battery, and the person has less energy available to make other decisions later on.

A driver operating in city traffic flow makes 50-60 decisions per mile.
It’s said that 90 percent of our driving decisions are based on visual information. Our wiper blades play an important role in this. Most drivers know that a dirty or streaked windshield can catch the glare of the sun or on-coming headlights and make it nearly impossible to see.
“Micro-decisions” are the decisions made transaction by transaction, customer by customer. Companies often fail to recognize these as individual decisions, instead lumping them into bigger ones.
Decision fatigue is when the mind becomes fatigued after a sustained period of decision making. Making decisions is a cognitively taxing process, and decision making ability declines after long sequences of decisions.
