TOEFL Essay Topic 120 - Decisions can be made quickly, or they can be made after careful thought. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? The decisions that people make quickly are always wrong. Use reasons and specific examples to support your opinion.
Even though some people think the quick decisions that they made are wrong, I do not agree with this statement. I have a few reasons that I will explain in the following essay.
First of all, the quick decisions are sometimes right. Many people feel what they need to do when they are asked to make a decision that influences their lives. For example, the famous author J.K Oliver decided to move to England from Germany after two days she was advised to do so. She did not have any friends in England and she could not speak German at all, but she decided to live in England. After a year of living in England, she got a wonderful idea which would be the basic of her famous book, and she has a successful life in England. The quick decision made her to be one of the happiest women in the world. Moreover, if people really need to make a decision, they do not take a long time for thinking. For instance, when I decided to study abroad in Canada, I made my decision very quick. Even though I liked my family, hometown, school and something similar, I knew which decision makes my life more valuable. I had a lot of time to think before applying, but I made up my mind very quick. I am sure the decision that I made is not wrong, and I think this happens to a lot of people.
Second, people make important decisions so quick. For example according to an article that I read people make an important decision such as quitting a job, buying a car and moving to a new place in short time. Although twenty percent of people who were interviewed said they took about a year to make those big decisions, more than half of them said it took less than a month for them to choose the choice. Furthermore, when people want to buy a house, they decide the location, and the house itself for just a year after they start thinking about move to or buying a house. These results significantly show that people make a decision especially a huge one very quick.
In conclusion, although many people point out that the choices they made in a short time are wrong, I disagree with this statement for these reasons.
