69. Need for closure

People have a need for closure. As soon as there is a disturbing open question, we have the desire to immediately find a solution for it and put it behind us. We prefer a fast decision whose correctness is uncertain to a long and grueling search for a complete solution which may appear to be endless. Although we do not have infinite time to come up with answers, it is advisable that we think well before coming to any conclusions, probably a bit longer and more thoroughly than we would prefer to.
