Abstract In this study, we explored the unique and common contributions of anxiety, self-esteem, and family communication on indecisiveness among adolescents. Three hundred and fifty pupils from 13 to 16 years of age completed selfreportmeasures on indecisiveness, quality of family communication, trait anxiety, and self-esteem. The findings in this study showed that students’ indecisiveness is predicted by family communication mediated by anxiety and self-esteem. These results have important implications for practice as it stresses the importance ofanxiety and self-esteem. Nevertheless, the counselors could also focus on enhancingrelationship-building skills by introducing the adolescents’ career formation as an adolescent–parent joint project.
