If someone overthinks a decision, it means they overvalue intelligence/prediction or they are very risk averse

thinking of L.Bs decision about SF or NYC and how they approached it. Wouldn’t have been ruinous in either situation. Very unlikely to increase the odds of decision success with further deliberation; but ultimately did so anyway. A strong indicator that they are under appreciating the complexity/nuance involved in any outcome (unpredictable futures) or very afraid of being wrong.
