When you have a choice to make, you tend to:
- Look for one that will meet your criteria. The first acceptable solution is the right one.
- OR look for the best option. You review all the possibilities to be sure not to miss an even more satisfying one.
If the maximizers, those of the second category, generally make decisions of better quality, the satisfiers, the first category, are generally happier and satisfied with their lives.
Indeed, the maximiers would tend, even after making their choice, to re-examine the other options and question their initial choice.
