Is indecisiveness a symptom of depression?

Depression causes mental slowing, and decision making can seem to take forever. In addition, depressed individuals often lack persistence and give up too easily when faced with difficult problems. Unipolar major depression may interfere with your ability to focus, making it harder to follow one train of thought before another thought intrudes, and you lose your concentration.

Depressed people should consider putting off important decisions until their depressive episode is over and their thoughts are free of the influence of unipolar major depression.
