Should you go to Harvard or Yale, play World of Warcraft or Guild Wars, move back home or live with a friend? You could think about the problem on your own, talk about it with a friend, start writing down the merits of each option, or turn to the web and let ProConLists.com help find your solution. The premise behind the site is simple—allow users to make pro/con lists debating any topic they want and utilize the collective power of the Internet to connect people who have experience dealing with similar types of situations.
No matter what type of problem you’ve got on your mind, Pro-Con Lists can help you find your own solution. Start by creating a list with a title, category, and description, and then begin entering your own pros and cons. Each pro and con item can be ranked based on rational and emotional weight, and you can instantly calculate your results to determine which option you should choose. When you save a list, you can decide whether to make it private or share it with friends. If you allow the poll to be public, then it will show up under the category heading and other users will be able to rate it, email it, or leave their own comments to share their ideas and advice.
Once you’ve finished updating your pros and cons, you can view the list as pie graph and sort it by emotional results, rational results, or balanced results. And based on which answer comes out on top, your choice should theoretically be made. For anyone who’s having a hard time making a tough decision—and especially anyone who enjoys getting input from friends or strangers—Pro-Con Lists is a web-app that is definitely worth checking out.
