43 (IELTS Speaking) Part 3 – Decision topic mới nhất

The most significant disadvantage in my opinion is that asking for advice from too many people may lead to greater confusion as we can’t decide whose is the best to follow. Secondly, if we don’t thoroughly consider our matter and just blindly follow other people’s advice, we may end up making the wrong decision. I think the best thing to do is talk about your options with someone you trust and who knows you well.

  • Why do you think some people are better at making decisions than others?

Firstly, I think some people have a greater deal of experience and skills in decision-making than others, so it usually takes less time and effort for them to decide compared to others. Secondly, some people are just naturally and instinctively more decisive and find it easy to make a decision and stick to it. Others, especially worriers or anxious people, constantly think they have or will make the wrong choice.

  • Do you think children should be given the opportunity to make their own decisions? What kind of decisions?

I totally agree that adults should give children more freedom to make their own decisions. It may involve simple situations like which subject children prefer to learn or what hobby they want to try. Let kids have more independence to stick to what they truly love as this might greatly benefit their future. I can recall reading some articles stating that individuals who are given more freedom to decide what they want will become more successful in their lifetime than those who aren’t. In addition, I believe that children with good decision-making and critical thinking practice would eventually become better at problem solving.

  • Some people say we only learn by making mistakes. Do you agree?

To some extent, I’m against this opinion. We can learn from making mistakes, but it isn’t always the case. On the one hand, it’s true that success is derived from learning what we had done wrong in the past and making sure we don’t repeat it. As a result, we will gradually improve ourselves and get closer to success. This is a constant process that probably never ends. On the other hand, we can learn many things without making mistakes, for instance, by being hardworking and open-minded, or maybe though continuous observation and thorough preparation before doing something important, then hard efforts would eventually pay off.
