Known By Your Decisions


In the show Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David goes to the optometrist. While the doctor tests his eyesight with two different lenses, he can’t make up his mind which one is better. He even states that the problem with his life is that he can’t stay with his first instinct; he second-guesses himself and ends up making the wrong choice by not making the choice (season 11, episode 4, “The Watermelon,” directed by Jeff Schaffer, aired November 14, 2021). His character throughout the show is depicted as unlikable, often due to poor decision-making or indecision at important moments.
