In so doing, it has suggested establishing as both politically significant and worthy of legal scholarly attention the very terms in which such "choices" are formulated and articulated, and to recapture some sense of the persistent undecidedness

Both poems do, however, start by proclaiming a crisis and close with an argument about closure and action, suggesting that true action is often inaction, or undecidedness
, and true closure often allows opposites to coexist in tension rather than either repeating and therefore instantiating (and fulfilling) a pattern or following the chemical model of a positive and negative charge canceling each other out to reduce tension.
The gods of the sacrificial religions--and every religion, Nancy claims, is sacrificial, a translation of the gesture of offering into an exchange, into an oppressive economy of "terror" and "guilt" (135/31)--ultimately prohibit man's true "sacrifice." The latter is an abandonment in the sense of an "oblation," "libation" (136/32), which is interrupted or obstructed by the doctrine and the practices of positive religions insofar as they, as Nancy puts it, "prevent the supreme undecidedness

Evidence of concurrent validity (Robbins & Patton, 1985) indicated a significant correlation with career undecidedness
(r = -.22).
To form a scale from these three factors, it was necessary to reverse the scoring of the first question, which in its original form indicated undecidedness
. To avoid confusion in this paper, we will call the first of these scores (based on the 18 items) CDDQ Difficulties and the second score (based on three items) CDDQ Decision Status.
Both career counsellors and their clients typically see the successful outcome of their interaction to be in terms of moving from undecidedness
It is important to note that the measurements of career decision state (i.e., OAQ and satisfaction) reflect a higher level of undecidedness

For practice, implications of these findings include the need for practitioners to place less emphasis on planning for certainty and more tolerance of undecidedness
A scale of educational and vocational undecidedness

A scale of educational--vocational undecidedness
: A typological approach.
Instead of focusing on the target behavior of attending a specific workshop, it focused on the outcomes of being undecided--specifically, continued undecidedness

In the theory's application, decidedness is not always the best outcome, and undecidedness
can be the most appropriate conclusion of career counseling.
(1988) found that DISCOVER was effective in decreasing career undecidedness
and increasing the CDMSE of college students.
