When you have lots of data and you actually have lots of options, you actually freeze to take the decision. In another way, we call it choice Paralysis or if we go by the book of American psychologist “Barry Schwartz” we can call it the paradox of choices.
Why it is happening, the reason is called FOMO or “fear of missing out”, FOMO perpetuates the fear of having made the wrong decision on how to spend time, as “you can imagine how things could be different”. It comes to again the 2nd option we talk about earlier – ” When you are scared of taking any action because of the outcome” In this case you are scared of the outcome of each option you have because you overanalyzed upcoming result. If you look closely both options complete each other, the option where you overanalyzed things prey on your fear and the option where you are scared to take action is prey on over-analyzing.
